  • A Child Loaned "I'll lend you for a little time A child 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 year Or twenty-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 down there I want the child to learn. I've looked this wide world over In my search for teacher's true, And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you; Now will you give him all your love, Nor think the labour vain Nor hate Me when I come to call And take him back again? I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord, They will be done, For all the joy Thy child shall bring, For 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 should the angels call for him Much sooner than we planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand.

  • I heard this from somewhere, " A child was given to us and we hoped for a long and happy life with them to see them grow, learn, and to one day to see them married with a family of his/her own. But now, God decided to take him/her to Heaven. Evidently, God had other plans for him/her."

  • Love this one-

    Song on the Wind
    Take these windchimes that we give you,
    Hang them high up in a tree.
    Let the melody remind you,
    Of the spirit that is he/she.
    He/She would have wanted song,
    To come and fill our days.
    He/She would surely bring you laughter,
    If there was any sort of way.
    If he/she could, he'd/she'd grin that grin of his/hers,
    That crinkled up his/her eyes.
    That somehow owned a twinkle,
    He/She never could disguise.
    There's nothing to replace,
    The one we knew and loved.
    But we can listen for his/her song of joy,
    From the chimes hung up above.
    When you hear the wind pass through them,
    You'll hear a happy sound,
    The notes will fill your heart,
    And you'll know that he/she is around.
    Take these wind chimes that we bring you,
    Let their music fill the air.
    Let them sing a song upon the wind,
    And feel him/her standing there.
