My Child

My Child
My child
I gave my life
So that you could live
The greatest gift
That one could give
My Child
I wish you could
But you can never know
How much I love you
And that love will always grow
My child
I watch you play
But from afar
From high above
Upon a star
My child
I walk with you
From day to day
My child please know
I never went away
My child
You were a gift
From heaven above
Sent to bathe
In your parent’s love
My child
Remember how special
How beautiful you are
for God sent you
To me from afar
Written in memory of a good friend who died in child birth
