In memory of my friend Eileen Remen Rosen, 29/4/55-13/8/20

lyrics

Eileen

I knew her from way back when,
Introduced by a mutual friend,
She was feisty and funny, angry and sad,
And we lurched between good times and bad.

In time, we went our separate ways,
Kept in touch, though I’d moved far away,
Still feisty and funny, angry and sad,
She stayed true to the memories I had.

Looking back, it’s much clearer to see
The way some lives are hardwired to run,
And when the curtain falls,
It’s the end that always had to come,
Still we wonder what we could have done.

Years passed, and she’d gone from my life,
Then a ‘friend’ request came up one night:
Still feisty and funny, angry and sad,
But she’d married the gentlest man.

Looking back, it’s much clearer to see
The way some lives are hardwired to run,
And when the curtain falls,
It’s the end that always had to come,
Still we wonder what we could have done.

Evil from another time
Reverberates down through the years
To take its toll on one more life,
Haunted by untold fears.

This June I was back down that way,
We caught up over two edgy days,
She was feisty and funny, angry and sad,
And thank God for that last time we had.

Looking back, it’s much clearer to see
The way some lives are hardwired to run,
And when the curtain falls,
It’s the end that always had to come,
Still we wonder what we could have done;
Was there anything we could have done?
