A Child Loaned
“I’ll lend you for a little time
A Child of Mine”, He said.
“For you to love the while he lives
And mourn for when he's dead.
It may be one or two years
Or twenty – two or three
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you
And should his stay be brief,
You’ll have his lovely memories
As solace for your grief’.
