Heaven's Child
by Katherine Eby
(written for Toby)


The blueprints are not flawed
Steady fingers have not failed
This is no accident
Sometimes grace comes veiled

It is not mine to prevent
Not mine to remedy
It is mine to accept
And simply bow my knee

This is masterful design
Not genetics going wild
Exactly as intended
This is Heaven's child

Sent for more than my enjoyment
I can not hold him selfishly
His creator has a purpose
Higher than my plans for me

It is not mine to worry
Not mine to question why
It is mine to hold him
To gently hush his cry

It is mine to offer comfort
To love him without greed
It is mine to walk beside him
But let his Creator lead

Planned from long before creation
Written down, his Maker smiled
Exactly as intended
This is Heaven's child
