Inspiration: The inspiration for this poem is a little person who arrived as a surprise. Often it is asked if you could change one thing in the world, what would it be? I think for me it would be that all children could be loved, nurtured, protected, raised to know God and subsequently their true value. This might seem a very simple statement to make in a complex world but what a difference it would make if all children knew they were a blessing.
Theme: Relationships /Children
Sleeping Child. I stood and watched my sleeping child, Angelic in her rest, I stood amazed and thanked the Lord, For the miracle with which I was blessed, This child was not planned, An accident some would say, But I can see that from heaven - To me she was lent, I did not know what lay ahead, What heartbreak pain and grief, But God, who knows all things, Sent this child to steady my belief, For life is always changing, A series of deaths which give way- To new birth, And God lends us little angels, To light our way on earth.
