"A Lesson From A Child"
Confident and matter of fact My young son turned to me After my explanation of what handicapped means He said ,"G-d will make him walk, talk and see" His innocence was bitter sweet A million thoughts filled my head Inevitable truths he'll soon find out as the cocoon of childhood is shed. With all he'll learn that all's not fair, And some things are not repaired Things are lost and not returned. People suffer from confusion and despair. I've learned these painful things with time, Though once I was as young. But I looked into his bright clear eyes and saw my growing is not done. His Steady gaze challenged me to take the faith of youth Combined with wisdom of passing time And find eternal truth. My son we must pray with all our strength To have our prayers reach the gates of heaven up above. For the tears of G-d's children do not go unanswered From the Holy One above. To see through the eyes of one who's aged, And trust with a child's heart. That all G-d's ways are perfect And we only see a small, small part!"
