We were human once

We were human once said the man,
as he looked at the graves of the war dead and wiped away a tear,
we were human once, but we lost our way and death is never far away,
but we were human once, a long, long time away from here,
we were human once he cried,
as the thunder roared and crashed and the lightening flashed in the sky,
we were human once he said but I will not be here long,
but remember this if we are the last humans on the Earth the world has gone wrong,
and heaven will take us,
for we were human once and God will make us again,
and I look at the man, but I do not agree,
because to me personally,
I have my doubts, because God for far too long has been nowhere to be seen.
