My Little Angel

You’ve just walked on ahead of me

And I’ve got to understand

You must release the ones you love

And let go of their hand.

I try and cope the best I can

But I’m missing you so much

If I could only see you

And once more feel your touch.

Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me

Don’t worry I’ll be fine

But now and then I swear I feel

Your hand slip into mine.




If tears could build a stairway,

and memories a lane,

I’d walk right up to Heaven

and bring you home again.

No farewell words were spoken

no time to say goodbye

you were gone before I knew it,

and only God knows why.

My heart still aches in sadness

and secret tears still flow,

what it meant to lose you,

no one will ever know.

A Child Loaned

“I’ll lend you for a little time 

A child of Mine.” He said.

“For you to love the while he lives

And mourn for when he’s dead. 

It may be six or seven year 

Or twenty-two or three 

But will you, till I call him back 

Take care of him for Me? 

He’ll bring his charms to gladden you 

And should his stay be brief, 

You’ll have his lovely memories 

As solace for your grief. 

I cannot promise he will stay 

Since all from Earth return, 

But there are lessons taught down there 

I want the child to learn. 

I’ve looked this wide world over 

In my search for teacher’s true, 

And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes, 

I have selected you; 

Now will you give him all your love, 

Nor think the labour vain 

Nor hate Me when I come to call 

And take him back again? 

I fancied that I heard them say, 

“Dear Lord, They will be done, 

For all the joy Thy child shall bring, 

For the risk of grief we’ll run. 

We’ll shelter him with tenderness, 

We’ll love him while we may, 

And for the happiness we’ve known, 

Forever grateful stay. 

But should the angels call for him 

Much sooner than we planned, 

We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes 

And try to understand.”

There Is A Special Angel


There is a special Angel in Heaven

that is part of me.

It is not where I wanted him

but where God wanted him to be.

He was here but just a moment

like a night time shooting star.

And though he is in Heaven

he isn’t very far.

He touched the heart of many

like only an Angel can do.

So I send this special message

to the Heaven up above.

Please take care of my Angel

and send him all my love.

Heaven’s Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from earth.

“It’s time again for another birth,”

Said the Angels to the Lord above,

“This special child will need much love.

His progress may seem very slow,

And he’ll require extra care

From the folks he meets way down there.

He may not run or laugh or play

His thoughts may seem quite far away,

In many ways he won’t adapt,

And he’ll be known as handicapped.

So let’s be careful where he’s sent

We want his life to be content.

Please, Lord, find the parents who

Will do a special job for you.

They will not realize right away

The leading role they’re asked to play,

But with this child sent from above

Comes stronger faith and richer love.

And soon they’ll know the privilege given

In caring for this gift from Heaven,

Their precious charge, so meek and mild

Is Heaven’s very special child!”

Precious Son

God, I know you gave your precious Son

To give us life with You.

But we didn’t want our son to leave,

Cause he was precious too.

We all are special in your eyes

And all to you return.

We know our son will not come back,

And for this our hearts still yearn.

Our time on earth is for learning,

And when our lessons are through,

Our Lord will choose the time we leave,

And we come back to you.

Our precious son is with you,

And there will be a day,

That we too will leave this earth,

And you will light our way.

His arms will be wide open,

And the wait will be worthwhile,

When we see again our precious son,

And the splendor of his smile.


I Only Wanted You

They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true.

I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.

A million times I cried.

If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,in death I love you still.

In my heart you hold a place no one else could fill.

If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane.

I’d walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.

But as God calls us back one by one, the chain will link again.

Epitaph On A Child

Here, freed from pain, secure from misery, lies

A child, the darling of his parents’ eyes:

A gentler Lamb never sported on the plain,

A fairer flower will never bloom again;

Now let him sleep in peace his night of death.


The Day God Took You Home

In tears we saw you sinking,

And watched you pass away.

Our hearts were almost broken,

We wanted you to stay.

But when we saw you sleeping,

So peaceful, free from pain,

How could we wish you back with us,

To suffer that again. It broke our hearts to

lose you, But you did not go alone,

For part of us went with you,

The day God took you home.



God Took Him To His Loving Home

God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.

He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered “Come with me.” 

He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend.

He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.

He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain,

God took him to His loving home and freed him from the pain.
