|A Poem for Joshua|
|By Joanie Sluhl|
|A beautiful child, fair of face
A Mother’s love, a warm embrace
A Father’s strength, yet gentle to touch.
This child knows he’s loved very much.
A love so new, and so pure,
He hears you, I am sure.
For where he is, there Is no doubt
The angels sing and trumpets shout.
For God is there to guide his way,
To bless his soul in a loving way.
Our hearts are empty, but in its place.
Is a beautiful child, fair of face.
For nothing beautiful can ever be forgotten.
Love, happiness and peace in heaven.
