to the family that has lost their precious son, a friend of mine gave me this poem that comforted her when she lost her twin boys. I pray it brings you the same comfort.
I'll lend you for a little time a boy 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 years or thirty 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 on earth I want this boy to learn. I've looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true and from the throngs that crowd lifes 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 and take him back 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 and love him while we may and from the happiness we've known forever grateful stay. And should the angels call for him much sooner than we planned..we'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.
I hope this brings you some comfort..you are im my prayers,,may God give you all his comfort and peace.>>Brenda
