You lived next door to me for years|
We shared our dreams, our joys and tears.
A friend to me you were indeed,
A friend who helped me when in need.
My faith in you was strong and sure;
We had such trust as should endure.
No spats between us ever rose,
Our friends were like -- and so, our foes.
What sadness then, my friend, to find
For all those years we spent on earth;
I plead today from hell's cruel fire
But, do not err, my friend, again --
