How I Looked Up To You, My Friend... - Poem by Lisa Vagnarelli

Since the day,
You walked into my life..
Ive never stopped looking up
To you, my friend..

Grew up together,
Since childhood..
Oh, the things we've been through
The bad and
The good..

Each others sides
We've always stood..
Each other
We understood..

Oh, how I've always looked up
To you,
My Friend..


Your Father's horse
You taught me to ride..
Your Father's rifle
You taught me to shoot

You taught me all the things
That you taught yourself
Since your parent's lives
Were taken away

Taken away by the bad
For no damn reason at all
Taken away for the land..
Leaving a child with no home..

And yet you had the strength
To carry on..
Oh, how I've always looked up
To you,
My Friend..

I guess I knew..
Cos I remember
The day you said
'The War..
Isnt over...'

Oh, when I woke up this morning
To find that you had gone..
I had this feeling..
I knew, my friend

Ran outside
And waited for you
It felt like forever
So I knew...

Oh how my heart sank
When your horse walked towards me
With you lying
Across the saddle, my friend...

Took you down
Oh, how I cried
You had blood stains all over you
Gun shot near your heart

With those bloodshot eyes
You looked up at me
You still had the strength to smile and say
'It's alright,
I'm only dying..'

No, I will not let this go..
Its not the end..
I have one favour to ask you
My friend...

Please be my gardian angel
Be my gardian angel..

Cos Im gonna finish that fight for you
Yes, Im gonna finish that fight for you

You taught me all the skills I need to know
Yes you taught me all the skills I need to know

Be my gardian angel
With you I can win the land, I know I can
Yes, with you I can win the land, and when I do

I'll name it after you..

All the trees, the river..
I'll build a house and a bridge
I'll make it beautiful, do what I can

And I'll name it after you..
I'll name it after you...

No Lord, I will not let this go..
Its not the end..
I have one favour to ask you
My friend...

Please be my gardian angel

Cos Im gonna finish that fight for you
Hell, yes, Im gonna finish that fight for you

They ain't getting away!

With you I can win the land, and when I do

I'll name it after you..

All the trees, the river..
I'll build a house and a bridge
I'll make it beautiful, and when I do

I'll bury you there..
I'll bury you there, my friend..

Cos I know thats where you'd want to be,
Oh, yeah...

No Lord, I will not let this go..
They are gonna pay!
Its not the end..
With you by my side, I know
Im gonna win this fight today
All for you, my friend..

I can win the land, and when I do

I'll name it after you..

All the trees, the river..
I'll build a house and a bridge
I'll make it beautiful, and when I do

I'll bury you there..oh yeah
I'll bury you there,
I will bury you there
Bury you there myself,
My friend..
