Song for My Friend Amey

You were bold and you were quiet, you were brave and you were shy

You were daring and demure, you were crazy, you were wise.

The friend who never faltered, the love that never failed

And underneath the softest heart, you were tough as nails

 

I can still remember conversations word for word

Talks that healed us both because we'd shared what we endured

Sometimes we would laugh like we had never shed a tear

Together we had planned that we would live a hundred years

Love so rich

Cannot be replaced

You've written it upon my heart

It cannot be erased

 

Your devotion lifted them 'til they could stand alone

Then stood aside and let them think

they'd done it on their own

Your support sustained them as they struggled to succeed

You gave them what they lacked before they even felt the need

Love so rich

Cannot be replaced

You've written it upon their hearts

It cannot be erased

 

When I need your guidance to remember who I am

When I need to say what only you can understand

You'll be close beside me like we've never said goodbye

And when I listen carefully I'll hear your voice reply

Love so rich

Cannot be replaced

You've written it upon my heart

It cannot be erased
