my dearest friend
Oh Sammy! my eyes long to see you, my dearest friend.
In a sudden your life came to an end
by the damn gun of a man
who mistook you for another one.
Your interment I didn't even saw.
Ah! this pain is still raw.
It gnaws my soul like acid
'cause these emotions aren't meant to be placid
being the product of a sorrowful love
initiated when your soul flew away like a dove.
