A child lost


I have a child lost in life
He lost his papaw at age five
How can I make him understand
That he is in a better land
He asks 'Why did he have to go'
All I can say is I don't know
He sits alone with tears in his eyes
I sit back trying not to cry
How to make him understand
I know how much he missed this man
Knowing my child is lost
If I could bring him back to us both
I would do it at any cost
'It's alright' I tell my child
Knowing slowly I am dying inside
This child lost in his little world
Losing a man he could not love more
A man of strength and full of love
A man no matter what, was always tough
In this child I can see the hurt
A hurt that not even mommy can cure
I see the scared tears down his face
A look I can not make go away
How do you explain why it ends this way
When you can't find the words to say
Do you tell him 'When you go through heaven's door,
You will find what you are looking for? '
Or do you just say to look to the sky
Look to God for the answers to why
What do I say to this lonley child
Mommy will walk with you through every mile
To help his little lost mind
No matter how long it takes
I will always have the time
Until he goes to God above
Help me to help him see it this way
Tyler. You papaw will always Love

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
