Song For A Friend (Gemma’s Song)

You touched my heart with your smile
You made me laugh when you laughed
It’s amazing how through it all you kept so calm

It’s just a shame it had to end so fast
But you were brave, oh so very brave
And I wonder how I would have coped if it were me

I don’t know what you went through
I can’t comprehend and I can’t pretend
But I tried to be a good friend
It just seems it wasn’t enough…wasn’t enough

We all told you it wasn’t your fault
We all tried, we all really tried
But you were strong for everyone but yourself

And I could see the pain in your eyes
Though you were brave, oh so very brave
And I’m glad I had the time I spent with you

How could I know what you were going through
Though I gave advice till I was blue in the face
And I tried to be a good friend
But it seems it wasn’t enough…wasn’t enough

You touched my heart with your smile
You made me laugh when you laughed
It’s amazing how through it all you kept so calm
