Bachelor #177 Poem For St. Peter

I'm speechless. That doesn't happen often. I read this profile three times, slowly. I closed my eyes. I opened them. It was still there. This is what it said,

"I would hope to find a wonderful woman, that wants to grow old with me until god calls him home ,if I leave before you ill wait by heaven gate for you so we can go in together .well talk soon i hope"
(This called for poetic response.)

If I should die before you wake
I pray St. Peter has made a mistake.

If you should die before I wake
I pray the Lord your cellphone to take.

I called ahead, hope you understand
I've made reservations for you and your man.
