Inspirational Poem - A Gift From Heaven

Author: Gail Lindsay - 1996

A Gift From Heaven
He was different than the others
he needed extra care,
so God sent him special parents
to watch while he was there.

They loved him more than life itself,
but sometimes wondered why
God had sent this special child to them
from heaven up on high.

He's a gift from up above,
sent from heaven just to share your love.
You have the kind of spirit he'll need, you see
he's a gift from heaven, from heaven above.

This child God has sent to you,
because you are special too.
You have the kind of spirit
he will need to see him through.

Not just anyone could raise this child
the way God would want them to.
He's counting on you to do
the best that you can do.

God will help you all along the way,
he'll never leave your side.
He's watching you and smiling
in heaven up on high.
