Closed Casket - Poem by Paul Mills

Where mommy did daddy up and go
Why can’t he be here to play with me?
Kissing and then holding me so tight
And bouncing me up high on his knee

When Mommy will Daddy come back home
Tell me again he still loves me so
I want to be cuddled in his arms
But he left so long – long ago

Why Mommy did Daddy have to leave
Can’t he even call on the phone?
I need and miss him so very much
But we are left here all alone

Please Mommy don’t turn your face from me
Is that a little tear in your eye?
I’m sorry Mommy if I did any wrong
Mommy O Mommy Please don’t cry

Shhhhh Darling be quite and say no more
We will see daddy again one day
He still loves us with all his heart
And wants us happy while he’s away

Now Mommy tell me again how Heaven is
And how beautiful the Angels are there
With Daddy as happy as can be
And all his love he sends us to share

Hush child now honey please don’t cry
We’ll talk later about when and why
Daddy will wait near the pearly gate
And we will be all together by and by

Dear Lord help my child to understand
Stand beside us now and guide the way
I place our trust and fate in your hands
Give us strength please Jesus I pray
