Heather Burns


Come Home My Child


As a small baby
made his entrance
into this world

A face more
beautiful than
a porcelain doll

Hair jet black and
curly
eyes midnight black

soft skin of olive
tone
God had created
perfection

gazing upon his
creation
in a soft voice
he whispered

come home my child.
