This is not goodbye, my friend
The time is fast approaching
When from America you'll fly;
Your heart will feel unsettled
As your new friends say good-bye;
But waiting for you in Japan
Are your family, pets and friends,
And they'll all be glad to see you
As your treatment finally ends;
The way to health was opened
In this strange and magic land,
And many friends were here for you
To lend a helping hand.
We're all so happy for you
that the trip was a success,
And you may go home to Japan
To a life of happiness.
We'll all remain right here for you,
And by email we'll be near
To send you love and our support
If ever you may fear.
The devil's gone, your health returns,
You have the gift of life;
We're proud that you have been so brave
Through the many weeks of strife.
Here's wishing you a safe flight home,
Where you won't need a translator :-)
This is not goodbye, my friend,
It's merely TTYLater!
I am so proud of you!
Your friend forever, and Canadian Mother,
