I’VE NEVER MET A MAN AS SWEET AS THIS

Way over a decade I’ve lived
   I’ve never met a man
as sweet as this
   Through dusty lanes
and broken roads
   Through mistakes and stories
Better left untold
   I’ve never met a man
As sweet as this.

Knocking fear in the face
    Dispelling doubt
Outstretched hands
   In times so down
I’ve never met a man
   as sweet as this.

Who kindles the torch
   And sweeps the floor
In search of the one
   That’s so so lost
I’ve never met a man
   as sweet as this.

Who calls out a feast
   With merriment of heart
Because he has finally found
   A child that had gone astray
I’ve never met a man
   as sweet as this

Who bore the guilt
  That wasn’t his to bear
Who took the nails
   That wasn’t his to wear
All for love too strong to declare
    To show me he care
He took my place.
    I’ve never met a man
As sweet as this.
