A Prayer for Little Boy Lost
by his mother
Sweet Lord Jesus, where did he go,
that young small boy who loved you so?
He prayed for his mom and his daddy too,
his old dog Delilah and his big brother Drew.
A happy guy, so full of joy,
where did he go Lord, my little boy?
You knew him, Lord, long before I,
as he grew in my belly waiting to spy
with his fresh small face, this great big place,
and he entered this world, with all your grace.
Where did he go, Lord, and what can we do,
to bring him back to me and to you?
He made many friends in the neighborhood,
at home and in school he liked to do good.
He ran through the cane fields with friends and his dog,
he liked to scare mom with a snake or a frog.
Where did he go Lord, what did we do,
to make him leave us and stop loving you?
As he grew older, life pressed in,
unable to cope, his troubles began.
His loving heart was wrenched and torn,
his once happy face strained and forlorn.
Oh dear Lord, why did he go?
Surely he knew how we all loved him so.
Time took its toll on Little Boy Lost,
he fled from life with tremendous cost.
We reached out to save him, but he would not hear.
Why can't he know that to us he is dear?
Dear Lord, please keep him while he's gone astray,
and return him to us in your will and your way.
