A Mothers Love – Helen Steiner Rice

A Mothers Love

(Poems About Children)

A Mother’s love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain.

It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away…

It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking…

It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems…

It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation…

A many spiendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.

~ Helen Steiner Rice

Heaven’s Special Child

Heaven’s Special Child

(Poems About Children)

A meeting was held
quite far from earth –
It’s time again
for another birth.

Said the Angels
to the Lord above –
This special child
will need much love.

His progress may seem very slow
and he’ll require extra care –
Accomplishments he may not show
from the folks he meets, way down there.

He may not run
or laugh or play –
His thoughts may
seem quite far away.

In many ways
he won’t adapt –
And he’ll be known
as handicapped.

So let’s be careful
where he’s sent –
We want his life
to be content.

Please, Lord, find
the parents who –
Will do a special
job for you.

They will not realize
right away –
The leading role
they’re asked to play.

But with this child
sent from above –
Comes stronger faith
and richer love.

And soon they’ll know
the privilege given –
In caring for
this gift from Heaven.

Their precious charge
so meek and mild –
Is Heaven’s very
special child!

In Loving Memory | Baby Loss Sympathy Poems

In Loving Memory
(Baby Loss Poems)

No flags were flown at half mast
when my little baby died ..
no limousine to carry her home
no crowds of mourners cried.

But the world for me stopped turning
my heart is filled with pain ..
my tears could fill an ocean
I want to see her again.

I want to say I’m sorry
to feel her lick my face ..
I want to hold her close to me
and always keep her safe.

I wonder how to end this hurt
to ease my troubled soul ..
I wonder how I can go on
without her I’m not whole.

And so I pray to God above
to take care of my child ..
say thanks that she was here
if only for a while.

And I will love another
though she’ll always be a part ..
of everything that’s good and kind
she will always have my heart.

I know that she is happy
running in fields of gold ..
and though I know she misses me
she’ll someday me mine to hold.

So sleep my little baby
your spirit now is free ..
sleep my little baby
you’re still a part of me.

I’ll Lend You For A Little While A Child Of Mine God Said

I’ll Lend You This Child
(Loss Of Baby Child Poems)

I’ll lend you for a little while
a child of mine God said ..
For you to love the while he lives
and mourn for when he’s dead.

It may be six or seven years
or forty two or three ..
But will you ’til I call him back
take care of him for Me?

He’ll bring his ways to gladden you
and should his stay be brief ..
You’ll always have his memories
as a solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay
as all from earth return ..
But there are lessons taught below
that I want you all to learn.

I’ve looked this whole world over
in My search for students true ..
And from the folks that crown life’s lane
I have chosen you.

Now will you give him all your love
nor think labor vain ..
Nor hate Me when I come to take
this lent child back again?

I fancied that I heard them say
Dear Lord Thy Will be done ..
For all the joys Thy child will bring
the risk of grief we’ll run.

We’ll shelter him with tenderness
we’ll love him while we may ..
And just for having loved him
forever grateful stay.

– Edgar A. Guest
