I've needed two to give me life,
Two kinds with different goals.
One helped create my body's breath;
One filled it with my soul.
Both men have taught me right from wrong;
Both mourned when I have strayed.
Each welcomed me with outstretched arms,
When I came back to stay.
One works and struggles with me here;
One waits for me above.
Both men are great in each his way;
Both men are dear and loved.
Someday I'll live with both these men,
Each happy by my side,
In peace and glory granted us,
In mansions up on high.
I honor these two men with whom,
Life's footsteps I have trod,
The one that I call "Daddy,"
And the other known as "God."
