Quietly, when no one was looking,

A little child walked up to Heaven,

Trailing behind him a string of

Sparkling diamonds--

Nothing of the world he knew

Like toys, clothes;

Only a string of stones,

Sparkling clear, like the dew--

Shining orbs, holding the reflections

Of what he knew.

"What are these?" someone asked.

"These are tears," he said,

"Tears of pain, tears of joy,

Tears of love . . .

This is how I grew."



Love,
Barbara
