For Our Loving Son - Michael

A Child - God's Gift to All Parents I'll lend you for 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, till I call him back, take care of him for Me? He'll bring his charms 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 that crowd life's lanes I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labour vane, Nor hate Me when I come to take him Back again. But shall the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand. Michael, We Love and miss you very much Love Mom, Dad, Stephen and Grandma
