I miss you
And I can't talk to you
In person or on the phone...
In this life, anymore
But, I can write you letters
Saying how I FEEL
To help myself feel better
I'm not worried about your soul-
Because I knew you
You showed me what love is
What real friendship is
I was happy you had such a loving family who you talked about
Especially your mom who you constantly talked with on the phone
My mom met you and thought very highly of you
I wish I could talk to your mom and tell her how special you were/are still to me..
We have something in common--YOU.
We all loved you
As did your other friends
Lisa, Danny, Josh, Mike...
Potter place members and staff
We all cried
We are hurting still, I know I am
Would you, say a prayer for me, in heaven?
pray that I won't cry so much
because it hurts
I know you want happiness for me and everyone....
Well, out of all the friends I've had, you had some really great qualities
some rare qualities that I treasure
Every friendship is unique and has its special dimensions
I don't have to name specifics~just the way you made me FEEL
---respected, appreciated, valued, loved, cared for, and you were proud of me
I just don't know what to do with my feelings
I thought they passed but they came back
I drive by your empty apt
And wish you were there
I think the last time I saw Eric was a few months ago. We saw "Aqua man". After that he was so sick, and we kept making plans, but he kept forgetting or canceling.
I never thought we would pass. He was 44. If I knew he was that bad off, I would have walked over to his apt, and knocked on the door. But, I had no contact with his family, and I didn't know much except he was depressed and getting treated. I thought his treatments would help him get well.
As it says on his funeral home card,
"God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, "Come to me"."
My heart cries out in pain
Who will comfort me?
Is there anything that can be done?
What can I do to cope?

Hi Umesh Chandra Bhatt!
Thank you for stopping in and leaving a comment. That means a lot!
We have time with people in this world, some more that others. And we learn from every relationship, good and bad.
God bless you, and I have good memories of Eric.
