Ashes

Softly falling rain
Cannot disguise the pain
As I sift through the lonely ashes
Left behind by a raging fire

Sifting through the memories
Reminded more and more of you and me
Laughing, fighting, just talking to each other
Neither knowing that the end was so near

Ashes strewn from here to there
A friendship torn beyond repair
As time moves by I slowly see
That us two as friends could never be

Life at it's best is very cruel
Just when I'd found happiness it
Took you from me too
