The world may never notice
If a snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.

But every life that ever forms
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.

The little one we longed for
Was so swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.

And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
Every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you.

When god calls little 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 seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps god tires of calling
the aged to his fold,
So he picks on a rosebud
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them
So he takes only a few,
To make the land of heaven,
One beautiful view.
Believing this is difficult,
still somehow we must try,
The two saddest words mankind know,
will always be good-bye.
So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind,
must realize, god loves children,
Angels are hard to find.

Time has taken me from you,
Although not very far.
I'll be watching through the sunshine
And through the brightest star.

I'll be watching all of you,
From the heavens up above.
So take good care of each other
And carry all my love.

If you're ever wondering
If i'm there, here's where you can start.
Take a look inside yourself
Deep within your heart.

I'll Always be your baby,
Your child (grandchild), your best friend.
So anytime you need me,
Close your eyes i'm back again.
