FOR PARENTS OF VERY SPECIAL BABIES.
I'll send you for a little while some babies of mine he said
"to love and care for when alive, then mourn when they are dead,
It may be days, or weeks, or months, or one year , two, or
But until I want my babies back, please look after them for me.
They'll bring their charms to gladden you and if their stay is brief,
You'll have some lovely memories as comfort for your grief
Dear lord who art in heaven, Let thy will be done,
For all the joy these children bring,
The risk of tears we'll run.
We'll shower them with tenderness, And love them while we may,
And for all the happiness they give We'll forever grateful stay,
And should the angels call much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.
