Ode to Christian

Life.
Precious, Life is.
So tender, a young child
The miracle of life
Rests in God’s Hands

Young Child, precious life.
Grow strong with life
Grow strong with God

Your parents pray to God
”Please Guide him to Your love.”

I had lost my own child.
You gave me the chance
to see the miracle
Grow. As you.

I hope the best for you.
I need to see life.
Grow around me.

You gave me life again.
I see as I once saw.

Life, precious as it is
So tender, a young child
The gifts of God.
