Said goodbye on a Wednesday morning

Right after day was dawning

Gave a kiss his mom

Said after baseball I’ll be home

 

Didn’t know him or his name

But things would never be the same

A man who had too many beers

Cut short that young man’s years

 

As I watched on TV

A picture of an angel was looking back at me

 

He was taken up but not lost

The angel at the crossing

Sings for us a heavenly song

Love given never is gone

 

Snatched up quick never saw it coming

Carelessly he was done in

Snuffed out a candle so bright

In a flash he saw a light

 

Taken up before his time

Loved ones left behind

Faces covered in tears

Sorrow-filled days and years

 

Now he watches by night

Catches the tear drops his mama cries

He holds her tight

 

He was taken up but not lost

The angel at the crossing

Sings for us a heavenly song

Love given never is gone

 

Remember me

Live your lives in peace

It’s not as you imagined

Your hearts are not abandoned
