I Took My Friend...

I took my friend to see the doctor,
He was feeling bad.
The doctor told me what was wrong,
What little time he had.

I looked my friend in the eye,
Could not find words to explain.
Tears welled up as I tried,
To ease his incurable pain.

The doctor told me all I could do,
Was comfort him and wait.
I watched the life in his eyes,
Fade then dissipate.

I bid farewell through my tears,
Told him it would be fine.
I loved him dearly, for so many years,
That beautiful friend of mine.

I didn't realize how much I cared,
How little time we had.
When I took my friend to be with the lord,
The best friend I ever had.
