A Child Teaches
God was extra special to me one day. He introduced me to an angel, I’m so very proud to say.
Together we spent just minutes a day. The message he left is with me to stay. A total stranger I was to him, but in his heart he took me in.
To show me the love he held within. A new friendship to begin.
A gentle boy, a tender heart, enormous love did he impart. A smile appeared as I opened the door. If only I could have learned more.
Big brown eyes beaming with delight. A quietness that spoke no fright. As his first ride to school was in sight.
As time went on our friendship grew. I even got a hug or two. Always a smile never a frown. So deserving of a king’s crown.
A message sent by God through the innocence of a child for us to see how the world should really be in spite of adversity,
The heavens are brighter, The stars shine stronger, As we keep Nicholas close to us. Goodness, Kindness and Love. Try as we might,
To practice these simple things we often slight. So to the Lord I’d like to say thank you for sending Nicholas my way.
I love you Nicholas I truly do.

“Could I have done things different? Held you closer when you cried?
No answer meets my questions, but of course, ‘cause no one’s there.
“I should be the one to help you, not the other way around.
The baby boy was bright and happy, the light, the warmth, the sun
But when he was lost my world went dark, when he left my world went cold,
Three years old is too young, but forever would be too soon,
I’ll never forget the smiles he’d flash and the giggles he would squeal,
