"I'll lend to you for a little while,
A child of mine", He said,
"For you to love the while he lives ,
And mourn when he is dead.
It may be six or seven years,
Or twenty-two or three,
But will you, till i call him back,
Take care of him for Me?
Hell 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 this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over
In my search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
Not think the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to call,
To take him home again.
I fancied that i heard them say,
"Dear Lord, Thy will be done.
For all the joy this child will bring,
The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
We'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness weve known,
We'll forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for him,
Much sooner than we planned,
Well brave the bitter grief that comes,
And try to understand"

Don't tell me not to cry ~ I know you mean well, dear friend ~ But telling me not to cry, Tells me you don't understand ~ But, how could you, really ~ Have you lost a child? Have you given birth, loved and laughed, And then watched him die?
This is my pain.~ Let me feel it.
Be patient with me when I want to scream, cry or be crabby ~ when I want to talk about him or want to be alone.
This is my pain.~ Let me feel it.
I know you'd take it all away if you could ~ But you can't ~ I can't avoid it or stuff it down somewhere, or run away from it because it always finds me again ~ The cold, hard fact is, that I have a child that died and it hurts ~ So I know, that this is my pain,
And I have to feel it to get through it.

From We Need Not Walk Alone, Summer 1994
When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
and each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
that an Angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready, in heaven far above,
and that I'd have to leave behind, all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye, for all my life,
I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much yet to do,
it seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for awhile,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized, that this could never be,
for emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne, He said, "This is eternity, and all I've promised you".
Today for life on earth is past,
but here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
but today will always last,
and since each day's the same day,
there's no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful,
so trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things,
you knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free.
So won't you take my hand
and share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart.
