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…
