Why is it some have all - others just get the rest?
Why is it some just cruise through life - others have to struggle to make it through the day?
Why is it some have bodies they choose to abuse - others get bodies that refuse to work?
Why is it some don't have a care in the world - others carry a troubled mind?

Today I farewell one of my closest childhood friends.......

Oh we shared some fun :0),
like painting pictures and selling them to passes by,
like picking flowers from other peoples gardens then selling them back to them as a posie,
like ransacking bags at council clean up time, to see what treasures we could find (best was a whole suitcase full of wigs!)
like climbing trees, only to sit in them and eat packets of stolen jelly crystals from the pantry,
like flying down the flying fox completely out of control only to see who could get the best time,
like walking the hallways of each others house doing foot exercises together, just so we could stay together a little while longer,
like going from house to house, bedroom to bedroom, backyard to backyard playing for hours at a time, doing whatever we liked,
like staying up late while our parents bbq'd together.

Childhood was great!
But things got harder as we grew up.
His mind didn't always work how he wanted it to - his body even less.It was like his own body was trapping him.  It was tough.
Sadly, sometimes things can build up to a point where we feel we can't cope - everyone has a limit - and sadly for him, this was that time.

I will miss you old mate and I hope you find peace. I look forward to the day we can laugh together again xx


  1. What can I say...I will just think and feel. Very hard for all. So sorry

  2. So sorry for your loss, life can be so unfair. Big hugs xx

  3. Heartfelt sadness for you and your friend. Life can be very hard, and it certainly isn't fair. xxx

  4. Oh dear, I am so sorry to read of this sad loss. I don't really get 'life' as such either. I don't think we're meant to, just some things are beyond our control. Big hugs, I hope the farewell was a fitting one for your dear friend xoxo

  5. I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear friend, life can just be so unfair to some, I don't know why. Take care. xxx

  6. That is so sad. What a lovely tribute to your childhood friend. Sending love your way.

  7. So sorry to hear this. Big love to you xx

  8. Only just reading this. Such beautiful memories. Only the good die young they say. So true but so tough for the survivors. One of life's many mysteries. Sending belated hugs x

  9. I'm sorry (and sorry my sorry is to late - I haven't done much blog reading the past few months).

    Many of your childhood memories mirror mine - especially the eating 'stolen jelly crystals from the pantry' ;-)

    I hope time is healing. x t.
