On the path to heaven walks a little boy

His mother's heart is broken

Her hope almost destroyed

He was her miracle baby

The impossible to be

They said it couldn't happen

But they didn't see

The plans of God laid out

The whole, not just the thread

But after hope rekindled

The boy was pronounced dead

She sees him in her mind

A picture of him in her arms

She holds him in her heart

She grieves him day by day

And though she understands it not

She hears the Father say

"The little one is safe with me

And here will he remain.

Do not lose hope, young, childless mother

For soon will come the day

When another child will come along

For you watch, grow, love, and play"
