A poem for my friend.


A beautiful smile springs to my mind
When I think of Steph, so lovely and kind
Luck smiled on us the day we moved nextdoor
To this wonderful family, whom we all adore
We had some great times over the years
Laughing and joking whilst sharing some beers
Chatting over our fence, happy in the sun
Watching our children playing and having fun
I always thought that we’d watch our kids grow up together
That our treasured friendship would just last forever
Our kitchen window will be empty without her happy wave
And I will always be grateful for the love that she gave
To us her neighbours, who will miss her no end
For we were so lucky to have her as our special friend.
