Peace will be yours

October 11, 2010

Rest as death comes do not fear what you see

you’ve suffered enough

I’ve never seen any one so weak

be so tough

No medicine for you

No funeral either

Nothing but the expeditious fire

You have gone to the extremes to burden no one

Although you do not know that many would

have served you with honor

You would have broken your neck on any given day for us

but would not even take the money for a bus

Stubborn and strong till you were done

Away you go with all task complete

You made your departure thorough

Hardly a thing to do for us

an amazing warrior

Though you lost the battle your fight was tremendous

you tried any thing and every thing to live

and would endure pain to be able to give

Peace will be yours.
