Friend Mattie
When time a shadowing veil has cast-
Oer many a year flown fast-away
and memory of the Joyous past-
Sweetness the bitter of to day.
Is there a thought? Sad Sorrow Healing
which can awhile your grief suspence
Yes theres a sweet, a Holy feeling
tis the remembrance of a friend
"Cora Johnsson
