Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, LOVE leaves a memory no one can steal. Irish Proverb

Little Angels

When God calls little children to dwell with Him above
We mortals sometime question the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold.
So He picks a rosebud before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but few,
To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult, still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows will always be “Goodbye”
So when a little child departs, we who are left behind,
Must realize God loves children
“Angels are hard to find”.

Where do you find this stuff???? Can I steal this for my Friday post? It's Leila's birthday, and it'll be perfect for the photographs I want to take.

Now will you please stop making me cry!!?!?!
