My Letter to a Stranger

My Letter to a Stranger~

The Child I Never Knew

jb children 3

 

 

 

 

 

Your life had only just begun

When God took you away.

I thought my heart would never mend;

The hole you left still aches

 

I never got to hold you hand,

Or brush your silky hair.

I never got to kiss your face,

Or rock you in a chair.

 

You never got to hear the songs

Sung to our other two.

Don’t think I didn’t ever care…

I’ve always thought of you.

 

Your smile I’ve missed throughout the years;

My heart has seen it though.

Your eyes must see the pools of love

When teardrops overflow.

 

I long to see your tiny face-

The kindly smile you wear

To see the color of your eyes

To touch your golden hair.

 

One day we’ll get to fin’ly meet

When life on earth is done.

We will rejoice on Heaven’s streets

Sweet daughter, or fine son.
