One man died a painful death with a lover on his lip,

She crieds as many salty tears that could sink a ship.

 

Another died as quickly as the bullet left his gun,

But as he lays beneath the ground his visitors were none.

 

A priest prays for both of them to bring each soul some peace,

For to look upon either's face, a tear is cried for each.

 

One man envies one mans death as he drifts of into sleep,

Another envies one mans life as he falls into a weep.
