He Only Took My Hand
(Loss Of Baby Child Poems)

Last night while I was sleeping
My son’s voice I did hear ..
I opened my eyes and looked around
But he did not appear.

He said, ‘You’ve got to listen
you’ve got to understand ..
God did not take me from you,
He only took my hand.

When I called out in pain that night
the instant that I died ..
He reached down and took my hand
and pulled me to His side.

My lifelong search is over now
I’ve found happiness within ..
All the answers to my dreams
and all that might have been.

I love you so and miss you
My body’s gone forever ..
But my spirit never dies.
And so now you must go on.

Live one day at a time.
Please just understand ..
God didn’t take me from you
He only took my hand.’
