The Saddest Word, Goodbye

Cutter Proffitt
All Too Soon....
He was taken all too soon from us
To dwell in his heavenly home above
Although we'll miss him dearly and
our hearts will forever bleed with tears
We'll always remember his few short lived years
He was bright and smart and full of life
He was the epitome of joy yet full of strife
But always truly sweet as can be
and always carried a sense of peace
Forever we will morn our loss
And never fully understand why
We'll be grateful God lent him to us
If even only for a little while
His parents and friends forever we'll weep
As we carry the memory of our lil bo peep
Although taken all too soon
He now joins the rest of our children
high above the clouds
To be one of the special chosen ones
An Angel now sitting in the lap of Jesus
and laughing loud......
(Written by Candye Daughhetee for Tracy Proffitt, a loving mother and precious loyal friend!)


The Saddest Word, Goodbye

When God calls our children
to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with,
the death of one small child.
Who does so much to make our world,
seems so wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to His fold.
So He picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so He takes but a few.
To make the land of heaven
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be Good-bye.
So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind,
must realize God loves children.
