One day a tiny angel boy
of heaven's gate,
He was not discovered missing,
Until it was too
Of course, God was most
About this precious, little soul,
Who got away from
Before his time to go.
But God's eye was on this little guy,
been wonderfully designed,
Though tiny, he was mighty,
He just needed
Yet somehow he slipped through the
When the gatekeeper's back was turned,
And he made it all the way to
With wings too small for his return.
He found a perfect mother,
was bigger than he was,
Not even heaven could compete
For such a mother's
The divine love he brought with
Was a love direct from God,
For he still belonged to
Though here on earthly sod.
He was so fragile and so helpless,
mother's strength not quite enough,
Man's world a strange and frightening
Not like heaven - much too tough.
This child was made by God
image, for His Glory,
No way could earth lay claim to him,
precious, angel boy.
Too young to fly home on his own,
sent gentle angels down,
Who swiftly, sweetly carried him
Back home, where
God left a message for his mother,
let her know her son and she
Would one day be together,
As sons and
mothers ought to be.
But in the meantime, she should
And watch up in the sky,
For what she thinks are tiny birds
be her sweet angel flying by.
