A boy like him doesn’t come along every day
You’re lucky you were there at the right time
If I could say the same
About you for him
I’d have to search every verse and rhyme
To find a way of eluding the truth
Still sounding a bit refined
While telling you, “Damn, you blew it my friend
You had him and left him behind”.
My God, what a kid you never new you had
Even a fool would give up their life
To a better one knowing that he would provide
Gentle laughter and peace with no strife
He was a loving boy who knew there was more
He loved even after the “FEAR”
Couldn’t feel it as much
When the “PAIN” settled in
But he never the less wiped the tears
Of others he saw neglected as he
With their pain and their stoic veneers
A boy like him doesn’t come along everyday
He should have been smothered in cheers
You could have bowed when you had the chance
And taken him under your wing
Using the best that your mind would allow
Given reason for his heart to sing
But a boy like him doesn’t come along everyday
Does regret in your heart really sting?
A gift from God, given straight way to you
A fine person you saw as a thing.
I'm a freeman now, his authority's dead
no pain monger lies in my comfortable bed!
