A Child to Love
You can have your wealth and riches,
All the things so many seek,
Position, power, and success,
The fame you long to keep.
You can earn as much as you wish,
Reach high above,
But none of these can equal
Having one sweet child to love.
'Tis' the greatest gift from heaven,
Little arms that hold you tight,
And kiss so soft and gentle
When you tuck them in at night
A million precious question
And each story often read,
Two eyes so bright and smiling,
And a darling tousled head.
God has never matched the goodness
Of trusting little face,
Or a heart so full of laughter
Spreading sunshine every place.
A child to hold and cuddle,
'Tis' a gift from God above,
And the world is so much brighter
When you have a child to love.

When I read this to my daughter tonight it really touched my heart. Truly a child is one of the greatest gifts from heaven above, one I am forever grateful and thankful for.
