A Soldier Weeps

Sad Poems

A soldier weeps

Standing over an open grave,

Over the friend he lost

Which could have been saved.

His friend got shot in the chest

And was dragged to safety,

The soldier screamed out

"Why didn't this happen to me?"

His friend lie there bleeding

Help didn't come in time,

The soldier's friend died in his arms

The sun ceased to shine.

A soldier weeps

Over a friend, he'll never forget,

He damns his government to Hell

Being in the army, he now regrets.
