They Stood By The Oak Tree

They stood by the oak tree
Oh, so many years ago
Played there as children
Through rain,sun,or snow

They were best friends growing up
Though others wanted to make fun
They stuck through thick and thin
Their friendship always won

They stood by the oak tree
Many years down lifes road
Crying on each others shoulders
When burdens became heavy loads

Always there for each other
No matter what life threw
More trouble that came their way
The longer their friendship grew

They stood by the oak tree
There on their wedding day
As the finally got married
Heaven wouldn't have it any other way

Who else would they marry?
They were always deep in love
Never understanding lifes struggles
But always guided from above

They lay under the oak tree
After Heaven called them home
Laying there side-by-side
With that oak tree as their stone

As they walk through Heaven
Always walking hand-in-hand
A love like no other
Between a woman and a man
