This Man

I Saw a Man
And I heard his story
One of sadness and fading glory
Once he was a victor on and off the field
But now to a personal disaster he must yield
Today I meet a man

I saw that same man
He told me more of his story
He showed me photos of days gone past when he was in his glory
But family and friends did cause him to stumble and fall
Now he refuses to listen to the higher call
Today I said goodbye to a man

I saw that man again
He told me he was having another bad day
He bowed his head and asked me if I would pray
So I prayed for him and his family
It was a glorious time filled by eternity
Today I saw a new man.
