    Friends Are Forever
    (written by Billy Little) 10th January 2009

    My mind is wandering back
    To when we were boys
    All through our childhood
    We shared our toys

    We grew up together
    Never were we apart
    We were like twins
    Sharing the same heart

    When we left school
    We shared the same job
    We enlisted in the army
    We joined the same mob

    We trained side by side
    We went through the pain
    We grew from boys to men
    We would never be the same

    Then off to Northern Ireland
    Like the three tours before
    To protect the vulnerable people
    From this mindless civil war

    Patrolling the streets of Belfast
    Or the countryside of Armagh
    We were protecting each other
    Never ever straying too far

    I still remember that morning
    It`s implanted in my mind
    How did I miss that wire
    Why, oh why was I blind

    Now after all these years
    Each one comes and goes
    Never will I forget you
    As on your grave I place a rose
