God’s Gift
Georgia takes a second look at the man who once was the boy she and her friends taunted in childhood.
 

 

There was a young gentleman.
He wore white flannel pants.
My friend and I would throw rocks
In the mud and he’d get splashed.

 

He was God’s gift
I still miss him everyday

 

Then came the war, World War II
We did a lot of growing up
I heard someone call my name
There he stood, in uniform

 

He was God’s gift
I still miss him everyday

 

He asked me to marry him
When I said no, he asked again
The third time I said yes
Maybe he won’t ask again

 

He was God’s gift
I still miss him everyday

 

We raised two daughters
42 years of love
He was ill over 2 years
And then he passed away

He was God’s gift
I still miss him everyday
