I have called you thus for many years.
And lately I have come to fear
For you, Friend.
Alright, who am I kidding now?
It’s for myself I do avow.
Be true , Friend.
Don’t leave me here all alone to cry.
Refuse to make that final sigh…
Could you, friend?
I know you’re tired and you’re in pain
And normally your needs would gain
My due, Friend.
Oh, I cannot bear the thought of me
Without the part of you I see.
Can you, Friend?
I’m grateful every day we’re given.
I know worry wastes our living.
I do, Friend.
I try to embrace each day anew;
Remember things we say and do.
Not today but too soon any day
God will release you from your pain.
Peace to you.
His will be done.
