In Heaven He Will Wait
by Jo Gail Dolenski
Spring, Texas - My grandson, Jonathan, (Boo) lived with us and died of SIDS January 2,
1997, 3 days before his first birthday. I have been doing some writing and would like to
share if anyone would like to share as this horrible loneliness is so painful. One of the
poems directly related:
"In Heaven He Will Wait"
My thoughts go now to those in heaven and how lucky they must be,
to be able to see my grandsonšs smile and his climbing up on God's knee.
On earth we said his prayers each night when we laid him down to sleep.
For the lord his little soul to bless and safe and warm him keep.
His every waking moment was such pure joy to behold
We loved him more each passing day as we would rock and sing and hold.
Santa had come and gone this year and a birthday soon to be.
But his walk, his talk and his loving face we never more will see.
For the silent baby killer came and took him in his sleep,
And left us desolate and alone to long for him and weep.
I want everyone in heaven to know that another child comes now
From a family broken and spent with grief longing to touch his brow.
So rock him gently now for us and hold him tight each day.
Tell him to wait and grow and learn while we on earth must stay.
Let him know that one day soon we will join him in your throng.
Rejoicing to see his face again for his touch our heart does long.
The tiniest angels must be those God needed most of all.
As the reason he took them when he did makes no sense on earth at all.
So go to sleep my angel child for an true angel now you be...
And tell God to help us all through this while up there on his knee.
