She faced life. Raced, tumbled and got back up. All with the help and kindness of all the people she has met in her 24 years on Earth.
A Cloud of Happiness
Every story has an ending. But every ending becomes the next chapter of the story. All those memories made, those words and time shared, those food and laughter partaken and those tears washed away will always remain; a cloud of happiness that will always hover over us to keep us company forever.
It’s time to say goodbye
Tell you what, it’s gonna be fine
Our bond’s the sign
That our friendship will last a lifetime.
Haunting equations, formula
Acid fumes digging down our lungs
Yet we’d still join math and science clubs
We just can’t get enough fun!
Can’t turn off the lights
This research has to be right
These drooping eyes we have to fight.
Tests awaiting at sunrise
A cup of coffee to get by
There’s still time for a little chat
We laugh and try to stay relaxed.
Don’t you see?
We got through thick and thin
Every smile and drop of tear
Pulled us together through the years.
Such a special timing
We crossed paths right here
At that perfect moment
I knew a blessing has been sent.
In this small world where we live
One day we’ll meet again, you and me.
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only TRUE FRIENDS will leave FOOTPRINTS in your heart.

Paul Neglia from Poughkeepsie, NY USA on December 23, 2018:
I love the quote at the end to sum it all up. If it was true then it will last. If it was for convenience then it will fade. Only strong friendships last the test of time. It is so sad when you have to say goodbye though. Nice work
