Heaven’s Rocking Chair
Are there rocking chairs in Heaven
where little babies go?
Do the angels hold you closely
and rock you to and fro?
Do they talk silly baby talk
to get a smile or two,
and sing the sleepy lullabies
we planned to sing to you?
Our hearts are aching for you,
our angel children so dear.
You brought such joy into our lives,
the short time you were here.
We know you are in a happy place,
and in God’s loving care.
We dream each night we are rocking you
in Heaven’s rocking chair.
