MY GRANDEST FOAL
I'll lend you for a little while
My grandest foal, He said.
you to love while she's alive
And morn for when she's dead.
It may be one or twenty years,
Or days or months , you
But, will you, till I take her back,
Take care of her for me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you,
should her stay be brief,
You'll have treasured memories
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay,
all from earth return.
But, there are lessons taught on earth
I want this foal to learn.
I've looked the wide world
In my search for teachers true.
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes,
With trust, I have selected you.
will you give her your total love?
Nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come
To take her back again?
know you'll give her tenderness
And love will bloom each day.
And for the happiness you've known!
But should I come and call for her
Much sooner than you'd planned
You'll brave the bitter grief that comes
someday you'll understand.
For though I'll call her home to Me
This promise to you I do make,
For all the love and
care you gave
She'll wait for you, inside Heaven's Gate.
Don't let a frown turn you sour
Don't let bad thoughts make you blue.
Just always remember, think positively...
And everything will work out for you.
I love to get mail!
