I HAVE A FRIEND
Author: Unknown

?Dear Mom and Dad, the war is done, my task is through,
And, Mom, there?s something I must ask of you.
I have a friend, o? such a friend: He has no home you see,
And so. Mom, I?d really like to bring him home with me.?

?Dear Son, we don?t mind if someone comes home with you.
I?m sure he could stay perhaps a week or two.?

?Dear Mom and Dad, There?s something you must know
Now please don?t be alarmed,
My friend in battle was recently shot, and now he has no arm.?

?Dear Son, Don?t be afraid to bring him home with you.
Perhaps he could stay a day or two.?

?Dear Mom and Dad, but, Mom, he?s not just a friend.
He?s like a brother, too.
That?s why I want him home with us, and like a son to you.
Before you give your answer, Mom, I really don?t want to beg,
But my friend in battle was recently wounded,
And also lost his leg.?

?Dear Son, It hurts me so much to say, the answer must be not
For Day and I have no time for a boy who is crippled so.?

So months went by and a letter came, it said their son had died.
When they read the cause of death, the shock was ?suicide.?

Days later when the casket came, draped in the Army?s flag,
They saw their son lying there
Without an arm? and without a leg?.
