Received the text to say "goodbye"
The demons had worn her down
Ghosts from her past were stronger than friends.
I had to cajole and lie to find where she was.
Betrayal to her was unforgivable
I lost a friend that day....

My conniving to win her confidence broke her resistance
My promise to help her back-fired
I lost a friend that day....

All I wanted was to give her more time
Her family and friends would grieve
She could not shake her fears of regret
I could not make it in time
I lost a friend that day....

My decision to call 000 was made
This was by far, a choice I would never regret
Her husband and daughter needed to know
I lost a friend that day....

She fled when the flashing lights arrived
Her look could have melted ice.
They said they would help - rescue my friend
I do not regret what I said.
I lost a friend that day....

She needed more than I could give
All I wanted was for her to live
With bottles of red and little white pills
She wanted to escape and feel no more
I lost a friend that day....

My friend is no more, she has shut me out
Her daughter and husband understood
But a burning emptiness has filled the place
where once my friend should be
I lost a friend that day....

I miss you, please forgive me, I did it for the love of you.
