“You Are Our Child”
A Poem By Little Gregory
From the Perspective of Mother Mary

Dearest child,


When everything in your life seems to be falling apart
And you need someone, just to hold your heart
Surrender it all to us, little one, from each day’s start
And our wholeness and serenity to you we will impart
For you are our beloved child,
And our Love for You is an ongoing work of art


When your spirits dampen, darken, and descend
And you need someone, just to be a friend
Lean on us, little one, upon us learn to depend
And to your every pain and longing we will tend
For you are our beloved child,
And our Love for you knows no boundary, limit, or end


When the standards of the world make you feel out of place
And you need someone, just to see their smiling face
Smile at us, little one, for an authentic smile is a great grace
And you will experience our warm embrace
For you are our beloved child,
For our love for you is beyond time and space


When your duties begin to taste bitter and sour
And you need someone, just to pass the hour
Yearn for us, little one, with all your power
And in the sweetness of our many blessings you will shower
For you are our beloved child,
And our Love for you is shown even through the smallest flower


When your willpower is waning, withered, and weak
And you need someone, just to hear them speak
Speak to us, little one, and our reply truly seek
And you will find in us strength in the measure you are meek
For you are our beloved child,
And our Love for you is taller than the mightiest peak


When your life feels empty and meaningless
And you need someone, just to restore your bliss
Love us, little one, with all affection and tenderness
And you will feel His brotherly hug and my motherly kiss
For you are our beloved child,
And our Love for you is deeper than the lowest abyss


When the voice of evil drives you insane
And you need someone, just to complain
Draw near to us, little one, in the midst of your pain
And you will be released from the evil one’s every chain
For you are our beloved child,
And our Love for you shall forever reign


When you’re weighted by all you’re trying hide
And you need someone, just to be by your side
Reach out for us, little one, let go of your pride
In our Sacred and Immaculate Hearts, you can always confide
For you are our beloved child,
And our Love for you will forever abide


When trials and temptations fill you with spite
And you need someone, just to make you feel right
Walk to us, little one, by faith and not by sight
And we will give you the courage to fight
For you are our beloved child,
And one day, finally fully united in Heaven as one happy family
Our Love shall be each other’s endless and eternal delight!


In all our Love,
For our every son and daughter,
Mary, your Blessed Mother
And God, Your Heavenly Father


Verse:
“Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.”
-Mark 10: 14-15 (NABRE)


Quote:
“Jesus has shown me the only path which leads to the divine furnace of love. It is the complete abandonment of a baby sleeping without fear in its father’s arms.”
-Saint Therese of Lisieux, Doctor of the Church

This poem was written by me from the perspective of Mary Our Mother and God Our Father. It is the third and final poem in a series dedicated to a extended family member who recently passed away. Please say a prayer for him and his family.


May he rest in peace through the infinite mercy of God,
And may his family be comforted in the time of loss. Amen.
