"You've Gone My Friend" as written by and Sally Mary Seltmann....
You've gone my friend
You've gone to start your life again
You read the book
It told you how
To begin
And how to end
You've gone my friend
You've gone my friend
You've gone

You board the ship
The water laps against the sides
Reminds you of
When you were a child
You rowed the boat to mystery
And walked through trails
Where all the trees
Had faces
You wrapped your arms around
And felt the breeze
You've gone my friend
You've gone to start your life again
You read the book
It told you how
To begin
And how to end
You've gone my friend
You've gone my friend
You've gone

The ropes are tied
The shapes lay hard
Against your side
Forgive me for this
Empty ride
I gave to give
And not to hide
You've gone my friend
You've gone

You've gone my friend
You've gone to start your life again
You read the book
It told you how
To begin
And how to end
You've gone my friend

You've gone my friend
You've gone

You've gone my friend
You've gone

You've gone my friend
You've gone

    General CommentI think the book she is speaking of is the bible; a friend left to pursue religion...? "I gave to give and not to hide" what was there to hide? hmm
