A Baby’s Cry… #Poetry

The sound of a new-born baby’s cry

Shakes the foundations of heaven

Angels bend the knee in wonder

Of this new creation, yet no wings I see

Why are we not replenished?

Like the children of earth

Why do our numbers disappear like dying stars?

Has God forgotten his first love?

Have these wingless creatures stolen His heart?

Hiding it far into the universe.

Does the cosmic joker tease His mind?

Like the snake in the garden of Eden

Into thinking He must make a new world

His temper having destroyed the first one

When the children of earth forgot to remember Him

In soft whispered words of prayer

Let them sing hallelujah to the new dawn

We will still be here, His forgotten love…
