A Child's Message


I am stopping by to say,
Hello to mom and dad
I want to tell you two
I love you both so much
Please cheer up mom and dad
I made it safe to heaven
Even though I went too early
You both are in my heart
I know your grieving for me
Its time for a fresh start
Keep on your daily achievements
As I watch from above
Mom and dad I love you
Please don't be sad
It's really nice up here
I see some people you know
that was oh so dear
They are now taking care of me
Now just wipe that tear
Hold on to each other
You two mean so much to me
I am with God now
there are two wings I wear now
Along with a halo
just to let you know
I am safe in heaven
I am an angel now
From time to time i will check in
just to see your faces
Now remember mom and dad
How much I love you both
One day you will see me
when your time has come
I will be waiting for you patiently by the gate
I must go now
I have to say one more thing
Did i not mention how much I love you
to mom and dad
Love your child

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
