The Littlest Angel

I'm only a small child,
not much do I know.
God holds onto my hand
as I look down below.
I'm here with the Father
in the most beautiful place
yet I can't feel much joy
when I see your sad face.

Your heart has been broken,
I can see from up here
as you struggle along
and you wipe every tear.
If I only had words
I could send you today
that would tell you I'm home
and I'm really okay.

Heaven is beautiful
with sparkles and white wings,
and the angels are teaching me
so many things.
I'll grow and mature
in this Heavenly land
while holding on tightly
to my Father's soft hand.

Then one day you'll join me
in this home in the skies.
Our joy will be full
with no more goodbye's.
So don't grieve for me now
but find peace in your soul,
and know God has finally made
your little one whole.

Now, even if you can't seem
to understand why,
please know in your heart
that our love didn't die.
He tells me that just
for a time we must wait
and then I can meet you
at Heaven's front gate!

Lydia is not the mother of Althea. Lydia died in 1867, Althea was born in 1873. The correct mother is Nancy Cummins Piper (married Erastus in 1870)
