The Child - Poem by Debbie Peterson

There is no laughter
Inside these walls
There are no toys
Scattered in the halls.

No muddy footprints
On the floor.
No chocolate syrup smudges
On the refridgerator door.

No dirty diapers
To dispose of,
No bear hugs
So full of love.

Only my heart
That longs to see,
What it is the Lord
Has in store for me.

So if you hear me
Oh Lord up above,
I'm waiting for the child
You'll send for me to love.
