Combat Wounded

Dear friend, beware as you stand by
As you are now, so once was I
As I am now, so you will be,
So get prepared to follow me.
“To follow you I am not content
Until I know which way you went."
We are such things
As dreams are made of
And our little life is
Rounded with a sleep.
Green be the turf above thee
Friend of thy better day
None knew thee but to love thee
Nor name thee but to praise.
