A Child's Prayer

by Tracy R. Offer

My days on earth were filled with great pleasure;
I enjoyed all the birthday parties, sleepovers,
shopping sprees, most of all your love for me.

Please, donít hold a grudge
Do not feel you have lost everything

I felt no pain	
 I have much to gain being here with God

Angels will watch you day and night
I will still be at your side every second

I will never let go of our loving memories,
We shared so much together
I want you to be strong, keep your head up
Thereís nothing you can do to fix the pain
and suffering you go through	
 God will take care of everything

I want you to keep praying, donít cry for me
Be happy that I am in a place where
 nothing but good will come to me
Soon, you will be able to live a peaceful life with me

I know itís hard to loose your most precious gift
Every night I hear your cry

 I have good news 
When you weep, I wipe away your tears
When you smile for no reason,
Itís me singing in your heart
When you are cold, itís me that
lights the fireplace to keep you warm

They have taken away my body
but my soul will be with you for all eternity
I am with you always
