I had a dream the other night
That God sat on His throne.
He bent His head and spoke to me
With such a loving tone.
He said sometimes we just don’t know
The reasons things occur.
But He is able to foresee
The big picture.
I sat by God and saw this child
That struggled to survive.
He seemed so sad and so alone,
Unloved and so deprived.
I saw a hundred other kids
Who had it just as bad.
I saw God wipe away a tear.
He looked so very sad.
Then He spoke about a plan
To make such children smile:
He sent a special woman down
To make their lives worth while.
I was astonished when I saw
The life that she would live.
He gave to her a mother’s love,
The power to forgive.
She gave a lot straight from her heart.
She wiped away their tears.
She guided lives with loving care
Through out their childhood years.
God knew she needed special skills,
A warm and gentle soul.
To mend broken hearts like these
And make the pieces whole.
And so He placed her in their lives
And watched them grow, with pride.
Because He knew she took His love
and placed it inside
Every child she touched with care.
God’s love was passed along
Until His love was multiplied
And it became a song.
