Little White Friend


I recently heard an old friend, flatmate and boozing pal died after yearts in a wheelchair suffering slowly encraching paralysis until in the end he could only move his head and smile.  My heart goes out to Rose who loved and cherished him until the end.


Little White Friend helps ease my pain
Turns agony's mountains into pampas plain

Little White Friend slides to my head
Helps me to sleep here safe in bed

Little White Friend in the by and by
Will be here to help when I choose to die

But today is not my chosen day
So little white friend I hide you away
,
Little white friend helps ease my pain
Turns agony's mountains into pampas plain
