A few poems….

For my friend…..

CHILD GONE HOME

Children’s voices fill the air,
Life and laughter ring;
Across the hills of heaven,
Sweet, small voices sing.

Gone to be with Jesus,
Each little girl and boy;
Now run and play as never before,
In the land of eternal joy.

Never to know another tear,
Or face another pain;
What was a senseless loss on earth,
Has now become Heaven’s gain.

While Heaven is much sweeter,
In your heart you’ll not be alone;
God filled it with beautiful memories,
Of that child who has now gone home.
Allison Chambers Coxsey

A gift of love was given,
For just a little while;
A gift of love and laughter,
In a precious little child.

Someone to steal your heart away,
A little hand to hold;
Tiny footprints ‘cross your life,
Now left upon your soul.

The echoes of soft laughter,
The sweetness of that face;
The child who brought you so much joy,
Will never be replaced.

So take each loving memory,
Of that precious little child;
In knowing a gift came down from God,
If for just a little while.

Allison Chambers Coxsey ~

Sleep sweet angel, for all is quiet now,
Let my kiss rest upon your innocent brow,
Your sweet smile lives in the warm summer sun.
Thoughts of you are comfort, when the day is done,
The magic of your goodness dances in the autumn leaves.
Your melody sings in the wind that, echoes through the trees.
sleep my precious angel, forever you will shine
the pure light of Love within this heart of mine

May the Lord wrap his arms around you and hold you and comfort you. May you be able to work through your grief and remember all the sweet memories of your baby girl. Everything that she gave you that enriched your life and made you who you are today. May they forever reside in your heart. For your heart is where she always was and were she will remain. And know you are not alone. There are many of us that are walking the same path that you are just now beginning. And if sometime that you need help walking that path just ask for it and help will be right there for you to take your hand and walk with you, and carry you when you feel your load is too heavy to bear.

You have encouraged me, lifted me up, loved me rejoiced with me, prayed for me, and grieved with me. You did it with a pure and loving heart and I can never thank you enough. Ever. But, know that now in your time of need I am here for you, whenever you need.
