Missing Parts...God looked down, another child complete, A smile so perfect, a temper so sweet. But baby looked and some parts were gone, Did God mess up and make me wrong? God just looked at this perfect child, He explained Himself as He just smiled. “If I’d taken time to make that part you wouldn’t be such a work of art.” I would not have had time to make that smile, To list your talents would last a mile. Your sense of humor, that belly laugh, Where are these parts, you have to ask?
You are so lucky, these gifts of gold, Those missing parts are mine to hold. Forever they’ll be, close to my heart, So as you live, We are never apart. Each time I move, you’ll be on my mind, You special child, You are quite the find! So do not miss that part, You see, “It will always be safe and sound with me.”
