So many meals together we ate
So many glasses of wine we've sipped
So many things we've experienced together
And yet in the end there was no pain

I'll miss you and our exploring
But I fear you soon will be replaced
Not by anything as substantial as what we once had
But yes, you too can be laid to waste

It's hard thinking you are now gone
Never to be seen again
The vacant hole you left inside
Will heal closed with given time

I know I will eventually forget
The pain you once made me feel
As life goes on and your memory's erased
And then, once again, a smile will cross my face

------- Author's Notes -------

After reading this sentimental poem I wanted to show you how easily people can jump to the wrong conclusions. The real title to this poem is "Funeral For a Tooth". If you please.. read it again with that in mind :)

So many meals we ate....hahhaha....Man, this is hot! Hilarious! Dreamer, what a creative mind you've got! All the sweets you've chewed and calcium you've downed, that tooth was with you through the bitter end. Crunching until it became loose. It should be replaced by now, since this poem is 6 years old....:)
I enjoyed this one Lady R!

This tooth came to a more tragic end as I had to have it pulled.. I gave a copy of this to my dentist for his office. They thought it was funny too. Glad you liked it

Oh....laugh out loud...Good thing is, the pain is long gone. Oh yeah, this one had me laughing before I could finish reading....
