I like the repitition. It wasn't too excessive and it highlighted your meaning well.

I didn't like the lack of punctuation because it was hard to distinguish sentences and questions.

"Help, Help you cry out"... there's no reason to capitalize Help the second time

I also think you might want to punctuate with periods and questions just to help the flow.

I didn't really like the ending because I couldn't tell what was a dream, the whole piece? Still, the piece is interesting, the idea of sacrificing yourself to help another.

i think that your word choice is a bit juvenile for the subject matter.

example:

"keep him from dying" could be made into a metaphor of some sorts.

im detecting this is about war, and war poems are either in your face or very, very subtle. however, you are floating in the middle ground and i feel that with the right word choices, you could push it in one direction or another. with the way you have it now, it is still a powerful piece, but with a bit of work, i feel like it could become something much bigger.
