It is amazing how a child not even old enough to know the meaning of heartache can give strength and hope when sometimes we feel lost in this cold old world...

A Child’s Strength


The love of a child holds this cold world at bay

Her eyes look up and her smile shows me the way

Tiny little fingers in these old hands so rough

Pass on a great strength when I’ve had enough

Her laughter stills teardrops that threaten to fall

She sings me a rainbow bridge when I hit a wall

Like her mother before her she holds my heart

This three year old angel keeps me from falling apart

My cares in this word she makes them all go away

When she says Poppy come down here and play!

I loved this poem, It is so so true. My friends three year old daughter loved coming to see my rabbit. When the rabbit was taken by a fox and her mum broke the news to her that the rabbit was no longer there she turned to her mum and said I will give her Jessie bear (one of her favourite toys). I was so touched. Children are so special. Thank you for a great poem. God bless. Baz

Beautiful, this brought tears to my eyes. When my daughter went through chemo, I was crying one night and trying to keep very quiet so she would not hear me. In her weakend and sickly state, she came out of the bedroom, put her arms around me and told me it would be okay. This piece, so beautifully expressed, brought that moment back to me. Children have wisdom and strength far beyond their years.
