IT'S NOT WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN

By: Lana Hollenback

Dedicated to my Best Friend



When tears come down

As they sometimes do

It is hard to understand

They are not shed for what could have been

But what is today my friend.



For years you've been an intricate part of me

Hidden beyond the eye

Treasured within the heart

Sheltered from life's storm

And never do true friends part.



Lives may change

Different avenues pursued

Many different roads are taken

Some wrapped up in colored paper

Tied with different bows



So never fret what could have been

Live for today my dear

We don't have to understand

But live each moment as it comes

And know that we are friends
