HE STILL LOVES THE CHILDREN

Two boys in death hand-in-hand,

Tsunami’s dreaded toll.

Many times over and over again!

In heaven God in control!

.

.

Fighting waves as the waters rage

Each brother grabs a hand!

They clutch!  They gasp!  Breathing stops,

Lie dead there in the sand!

.

.

How can this be the will of God?

How can this ever be?

Millions of children in heaven now

In God’s eternity!

.

.

What hopelessness the Buddhists taught

But kids in carefree play,

God loves them.  He takes them home

To His eternal day!

.

.

“Let the children come to Me.”

He loves them every one.

“My kingdom waits, in heaven now

And I will take them home.”

.

.

What age accountability?

Who knows?  We will know then!

God’s love is what is accountable

And He can count to ten.

.

.

We see these boys still hand-in-hand.

They look around!  They stare!

Cannot believe this vibrant place!

Whole bunch of kids up there!

.

.

“Getting acclimated boys?

Do not be afraid!  Just Me!”

They see the smiling face, then run

To Him!  So glad!  So free!

.

.

Of course they know it is God!

They have seen Him through childish eyes.

Believe in Him so naturally

Gladly the child complies!

.

.

He points to the River of Life,

“You can breathe in that,” He says.

“Sorry about that flood below,

Will not happen up here, My pledge!”

.

.

Somehow they know, as they know Him!

His love for them well aware!

The Sea of God’s forgetfulness.

This they gladly share!
