Looking Over You

Jesus, were am I
In heaven young one
What about my family

I promise they will be okay
Aren't you supposed to protect me?
From bad things

The almighty Jesus shed a tear
And said yes that’s why
I brought you home

Come let me show you the swings
The slide and all the candy
You desire my young son

I want my mommy
My brother and my teacher
I know you do
That’s why I built you a window
So you can see them everyday

Now run along and find your friends
I promise no will hurt you here
The young boy ran to find his class mates
As Jesus looked out his window
He saw a mother pray
So he spoke to her and
Said hello my daughter
You are not alone tonight

Lord, I want my son she cried
Why did he have to be slaughtered?
I have no words my daughter
So I will send you doves with clarity
Angels to lift your soul
And I will always look after your little boy

Lord yelled the little boy is that mom
Yes, said the lord come say hello
Mom don’t cry I’m home
Jesus and I are looking over you

Don't tell anyone, but I am a sucker for the sentimental stuff.
The only problem I have with it is the suddenness of changing voices. Without quotes I read sometimes three lines before I realized someone else what speaking.
A little punctuation would solve this.
Otherwise, a very touching little poem.

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

jesus doesn't talk to anyone except nutters..Why not bring the dead kid back, or at least let him talk to his mother.
It makes no sense.
