I have no fear of you my friend,
You tell no lies you don't pretend,
You're not as evil as some I've known,
You only reap what you have sown.

You're not a thief that steals the light,
You take to what you bought the right,
And take not that which you don't own,
But come just to collect the loan.

You shed no tear; You do not weep,
Each date the borrower has to keep,
You take not many, just those few,
For payment that is owed to you.

I took no loan; I had no need,
Was able to control my greed,
So we can meet and shake a hand,
I have no fear of you my friend.

How true it is, Wolf. Fear no man you're not indebted to.....and don't be indebted to anyone. Good to see you.

What can I say that hasn't been said already? Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice-that's what I thought of when I read this. Good job, Wolfgang.
