In Papa's Arms by Kathy Colasante
Original art by Holly Otten "Daniel"
In Papa’s arms you’ll sleep tonight,
But not under a starry night,
Beneath a sunny, warm, bright glow
The Father’s love all up there know.
Oh little babe I see you now,
Perfectly formed and well endowed,
While seraphim and angels see
To all your little baby needs.
Little siblings someday you’ll have,
They’ll stay to make your parents glad.
But in God’s time one day you’ll meet
The appointed time when all’s complete.
So little baby, rest, play and grow,
My heart dreams now, one day I’ll know
The little one who left so fast,
But kept our hearts to hold us fast,
Fast to hope and faith and love,
Trusting our Father up above,
Helping our hearts to not be bound,
To what we see and nothing beyond.
