Child In Your Arms - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Child in your arms
Will always love you

Child in your arms
Will always love you

I know it's hard to understand
Why I was taken from your hands

One day we'll meet again
Mother and father hand in hand

Child in your arms
Will always love you

Child in your arms
Will always love you

Pick a star in the sky
And see the twinkle in my eye
As I send you my love
From heavens above

Child in your arms
Will always love you

Child in your arms
Will always love you

All the new mothers above
Giving their love
To the new born child
In heavens above

Mother father watch over me
And jesus will watch over you

I feel your love in heavens above
I'll see you here
When it's your time to come

Child in your arms
Will always love you

Child in your arms
Will always love you

Oh mummy dear
I see you and daddy so near

My life as just begun
In heavens above
So don't be afraid to live your life
Be glad and happy to what comes to you
I'll keep you safe as I watch over you

Child in your arms
Will always love you

Child in your arms
Will always love you

Sweet child in heaven
Sleep in peace
I hope you see all you want to see
Be who you want to be

God bless

    This is a song you've written, yes? I didn't want to read it for a long time, because of the title. I was right, it made me sad. Because I think you've lost a child, before you had Lilly... It touched a chord, for sure... (Report) Reply

    You repeating this lines double each time:

    Child in your arms
    Will always love you

    That show how deep love a child to the ones who raise him...Dave, there's something is visible by this hidden soul in your writing...I can sense the energy of it (Unwritten Soul can detect any soul talking hahaha joking) ...but the moving lines really beautiful made..well done_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
