Roxanne Dubarry (October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)
Oh, Where Has My Best Friend Forever Gone?
We were walking together side by side,
My Best Friend Forever and I.
It was on a beautiful summer's day,
that she went away from me.
Was it meant to be that we were
To be separated throughout all eternity?
All I have left of our beautiful memories,
are the things that she left behind-
She wore no coat, it was a warm day outside.
I still have tear drops freely falling from mine
Eyes! I have her bright red reading glass' case
still in my hand. Why didn't I understand her
when she was always talking about the soon return
Of The Son of Man!
'I know that you do not fear neither God nor man.
You never asked Him to lead you by your hand.
You failed to ask Him into your heart-
thereby giving your life a brand new start.
You failed to ask Him to wash your sins away.
And now I will be leaving you behind one of these
'And now, dear diary I am really afraid. Is it too late for me?
Have I already sealed my eternal destiny? ' Is it too late for me to call out to the Son of Man and ask Him to carry me away to my Heavenly promise land?
Poet's Notes about The Poem
They found my body the very next day. I feel fast asleep and
His angel carried me away. What a reunion we had then! I was reunited with my very Best Friend Forever More!
Love in Christ Jesus!
