The girl that I love
 

If you asked for a picture of heaven,

I'd draw you a girl that I know, I'm

Especially proud, pick her out in

A crowd, for her goodness, her

Kindness, her glow.

 

Her mum's not as well as she once,

Was, her legs playing havoc again,

The doctor knows best, he's confined

To her rest, and she needs all the help

She can get.

 

Other girls might rely on a care home,

To administer love and respect, but

Not this girl I know, too much heart,

Too much soul, she'll look after her

Mother herself.

 

If you asked for a picture of heaven,

I'd draw you the girl as above, I'd not

Hesitate, to say that she's great, guess

You've guessed she's the girl that I love.
