Siblings On Earth And In Heaven

by DiRussellNS

Date: Sun, 25 Jun 2000

I had prayed for just one,
My first born child was a son.
The chances were slim.
A miracle I called him.

He brought me such joy,
A beautiful little boy.
He taught me such love,
Angels came for him from above.

My mind, body and sole in pain,
Can I possibly live again?
I found faith in his memory,
And began my new journey.

I prayed for another,
My second born a daughter.
He had improved my chances,
My little girl sings and dances.

Big brother will guide and protect,

A lullaby sung to her at night,
Taught her of her brother in flight.
I believe she has the right to know,
He is a guardian angel that allows us to grow.

In the spring we plant flowers,
That flourish with his rain showers.
Brother is bowling she is told,
When the thunder is loud and bold.

She is taught of this boy,
Not in sadness but in joy.
She learns of his existence,
As well as his distance.

Someone once told me I was wrong,
My daughter has proven to be strong.
It was my duty as their mother,
Listen to her speak of her brother.

She wants him to come down from above,
I explain they are together through love.
She wants to fly like her big brother,
I explain someday we will all fly together.

Noticing a balloon flying high in the sky, This child tells others not to cry.
She explains the balloon has not gone away, Children in heaven will now play.

My children are sister and brother,
We all know and love one another.
