God Loves Children, Angels are Hard to Find

I'll lend you for a little time, a child of mine," He said.

"For you to love her while she lives, and mourn when she is dead.

It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three,

But will you, till I take her back, take care of her for me?

She'll bring her charms to gladden you, and though her stay be brief,

You'll have lovely memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise she 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 search for teachers true.

And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you.

Now will you give her all your love, nor think the labor vain,

Nor hate me when I come to call, to take her back again?"

I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord, Thy will be done.

For all the joy Thy child will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shelter her with tenderness, we'll love her while we may:

And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay."

But when the angels call for her, much sooner than we planned,

We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.

That when God calls little children to dwell with Him above,

We mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His love.

For no heartache compares with the death of one small child.

Who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild.

Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold,

And so he picks a rosebud before it can grow old.

God knows how much we need them, and so he takes but a few,

To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.

Believing this is difficult, still somehow we must try.

The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye".

So when a little child departs, we who are left behind,

Must realize God loves children, angels are hard to find.

Please add yours, If anything, it consoles us.
