    So yesterday my uncle had recited a poem, it started off really lovey dovey but ended on sort of a joke. It's a somewhat well known poem that he changed the last stanza of, it starts out like this:


    I believe that God above,
    Created you for me to love
    He picked you out from all the rest
    Because He knows I love you best

    I had a heart both brave, and true
    But now its gone from me to you.
    Take care of it as I have done
    For now you have two and I have none

    The last stanza is what I'm looking for. It's supposed to be a joke and I can't find it anywhere on the interwebz. The only part I can kind of remember is the beginning of it which went like this "If you get to heaven and I'm not there, you surely know that I'm down there" or something of the like. The last line of it was "So will you go to hell with me?". I loved that poem and I just need to know what that ending is! Anyone got a clue?

    When searching the first line, all I come up with is the first stanza, listed as a "Cute SMS message"
    No further searching provided any viable results.

    I am well aware, I've looked all over the internet. I'm starting to assume he made it up himself.
