God’s loan ” I’ll lend you, for a little time, a child of mine” He said, For you to love the while she lives and mourn for when she’s dead It may be six or seven months, or twenty years, or three, But will you, ’til I call her back, take care of her for me? She’ll bring her charms to gladden you and should her stay be brief. You’ll have her lovely memories as solace for your grief.
