A Child of Mine

I'll lend you for a little while
A child of mine, God said
For you to love the while she lives
And mourn for when she's dead
It may be six or seven years,
Or forty-two or three
But will you, till I call her back
Take care of her for me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you
And - should her stay be brief,
You'll have her lovely memories
As a solace for your grief
I cannot promise she will stay
For all from earth returns
But there are lessons taught below
I want this child to learn.
I've looked the whole world over
In my search for teachers true
And from all beings that crowd life's land
I have chosen you
Now, will you give her all your love
Nor think the labor vain.
Nor hate me when I come to take
This lent child back again
I fancied that I heard you say
"Dear Lord, Thy will be done.
For all the joys Thy child will bring
The risk of grief we'll run
We will shelter her with tenderness
We'll love her while we may -
And for the happiness we have now know
Forever grateful stay."
But should the angels come for her
Much sooner than we'd planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
And try to understand.

A Mother’s Day Gift From God

Lord today is Mother’s Day,
but my heart is split in two
Half of my heart is still here,
the other with my child that is there with you.
All the lovely presents are a nice surprise
But the only thing I want most is missing,
and tears fill my eyes.
I know when you sent him Lord,
You didn’t promise how long he would stay
All you said was to love him
and treasure him each and every day.
But Lord it crushed my heart,
when you called for his return.
I really feel like half a Mom,
as I ache, weep, and yearn.
But Lord tell him I Love Him
just as much as I did before.
And could you please make a window,
so he can see through heaven’s floor,
Let him see that he is missed
and thought of with each breath.
And that a Mother’s love begins before life,
and does not end with death.
So on this Mother’s Day,
The Greatest Gift
“I Give To You.”.
For Lord I know you missed him,
and you Love him too.
