God's song to His child

My Child has my eyes
My child has my face
My child has my heart
My child can't be replaced
You are my child
I hold you close
You are safe
In my embrace
No cause for harm
You're in my arms
You are my child
I love you so
No need to fear
I hold you tight
You are my child
Every thing's alright
I look in your eyes
I kiss your face
The joy you bring
Can't be erased
You are my child
I love you so
You are my child
I will never let you go
Tammy Greenwell
Behold what manner of love
The Father has bestowed upon us
That we should be called the sons
and daughters of God
(1John 3:1a)

Tamela,

And this poem, with its deeper meanings, is even more so considering God created man in his own image -- "My child has my eyes..."

Nice.

Hi Tamela, that is a beautiful poem. You have the gift of putting words together to bring God glory! I especially like..."My child can't be replaced." Your poem speaks volumes of God's love for us, and how much we are valued by our Father.

Blessings to you!
