When God was making men

As far as we can see

He made a perfect gentleman

Compassionate and kind

With more love and affection than

You could ever wish to find

Next time we meet

Will be at heaven’s door

When we see you standing

There we won’t cry anymore

We will put our arms around you

And kiss your smiling face

Then the pieces of our broken

Hearts will fall back into place.

(He was one of the good guys)
