I was little, and the Spirit whispered,
"Father knows and loves you."
I was hasty, and the Spirit alerted,
"STOP! and I lived.
I queried, and the Spirit answered,
"Because He loves you, child."
I dreamt, and the answers came,
"As a living rainbow."
He called as I cleaned their room,
Kneeling, tears fell as dew from Heaven.
He took my darling to His bosom,
And I wept as I missed her so!
Another sweetheart to fill my loneliness,
She patched my aching heart.
Oh! How the time flew,
As children grew and grew.
Now the patter of little feet,
Announce grandkids come to play.
Some are close and some far away,
We miss them dearly everyday.
Oh my! How the blessings flowed,
The Spirit whispered, "He still loves you.
Misty eyes and damp pillow,
Witness a grown child's love.
