Friend or Foe
Oh death where are you?
I'm the last soldier and I'm through.
Death please, please go away.
I'm just an old woman who wants to be with her grandchildren for another day.
Come if you want death I don't care.
I'm just an orphan and my life isn't fair.
Death can be cruel and death can be kind.
Its the way you see him its all in your mind.
