For My Dear Friend!!!

This Poem is for my dear friend Chandler, Love you sweetie!! And also for all you mothers who have a little one who went home to be with Jesus. May this poem bless your hearts!! May you lean on the good Lord, and he will carry you through.
The Mother's Jewels
I have a little darling
That sleepeth near my heart,
Whose beauty and whose sweetness
Ten thousand joys impart.
Love smileth  on her features,
And warbleth on her tongue,
And guideth all her actions,
So innocent and young.
A joyous little creature,
All full of mirth and glee;
Now dancing on my knee,
More precious far than rubies,
Or diadems of gold,
Is she, my little darling,
Who's scarcely one year old.



I have a little daughter,
Whose face is very fair,
With eyes of heaven's azure,
And soft and silky hair.
Her tiny, dimpled fingers
Are ever at their play,
While her unceasing prattle
Doth mimic all I say.
She saith her little prayers
Low bowing on my breast;
And giveth all a sweet good-night
Ere she repairs to rest.
O grant, my blessed Savior,
That her young heart and mind,
In childhood's tender hours,
Be heavenward inclinded!
I have another jewel,
 The brightest of the three
A precious hidden treasure,
Which now I cannot see.
Far, far away in heaven


This lovely gem doth shine;
And though I cannot see him,
I know he yet is mine.
And when life's woes are ended,
And all my toil is done,
Again I shall embrace him,
My own, my cherub son.
How oft our sore bereftments
Are blessings in disguise!
God has prepared a mansion
For us above the skies."
And thus to bring us to him,
In his unbounded love,
Untwines the spirit's tendrils here,
And fastens them above.

  7. Dearest Kelly {I see we share this lovely name!}... This is a truly beautiful poem and so touching... My own precious mother has lost three darling ones in early pregnancy, and oh! How our hearts ached for these wee babes... So wonderful to know they are safe in the Father's loving, tender arms!
    Thank you for sharing these lovely words! I know your dear sister in the Lord was blessed by them!
    Blessings to you...

  8. What a precious poem for a dear friend! Nothing could be more terrible than the loss of a babe! Thanks for sharing with SYC. I'm sure it's not intentional, but I'm not seeing a link back to the party.
