A little girl was in the highway and she was about to be hit by a speeding truck.

I pushed her out of the way in the nick of time but I got struck.

When that truck hit me, it sent me to be with the Lord.

I saved that little girl's life and now Heaven is my reward.

Up here there is no illness and everybody is kind to one another.

Now that little girl is grown up and she just became a mother.

People probably mourned when they learned that I was gone.

I had to pay with my life but at least I gave that sweet girl a chance to live on.
