Poem ”A Child Of Mine”

A CHILD OF MINE

I’ll lend to you a little while
A Child of Mine, He said
For you to love while he lives
And mourn when he is dead
It may be six or seven years
Or twenty two or three
But will you til I call him back
Take care of him for Me

Hel’ll bring his charm to gladden you
And shall his stay be brief
You’ll have his lovely memory
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 this child to learn

I’ve looked the wide world over
In My search for teachers true
And from the throngs thtat crowd life’s lances
I have selected you
Now will you give him all your love
Nor think the labour vain
Or hate Me when I come to call
To take him back again

I fancied that I heard him say:
‘’Dear Lord, Thy Will Be Done’’
For all the joy this child brings
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 shall the Angels call for him
Much sooner than we’ve planned
We’ll have the bitter grief that comes
And try to understand

  1. Bonsoir, ma chere Helene; j’aie lue ton blog et t’a reconnue tout de suite. Nos pensees et prieres ataient avec vous et.nous ne pouvions pas nous imaginer de perdre 2 enfants d’une telle facon, puisque nous n’en n’avons pas. Nous avions acheter une plante ou un bouquet, et on ne se sentaient pas capable d’entrer dans le salon funeraire, mais Marie-Therese nous avait vu la. Mais je suis tres contente d’entendre de tes nouvelle, Helene….et de t’entendre comme tu es bien dans ta peau maintenant….:) ton cheminement a ete long et penible….je pensais a vous tous souvent; je t’envoies de grosses caresses pour tout de suite et j’espere que tu ecrives un livre…(.P.S. i have author’s rights if you need a book to publish :)…1-705-855-2398). Hope to hear from you soon, my friend…;) have a great evening, and I really enjoyed reading your blog….you are a very strong lady 😉 take care…. xo
