A Poem for Bear
By Maw Maw Cindy
My dear little Bear who sleeps soundly and tight
So peaceful and trusting, your cares free and light.
I give you these blessings to hold all your life
To keep you through times you face earthly strife.
I bless your bright eyes with visions of hope
To brighten your darkness with no need to grope
At things this world offers as fool’s gold - no worth
To steal what God’s promised from your very birth.
I bless your sweet mouth to speak words of truth
From God’s Holy Word you learn from your youth.
These truths crush the lies the enemy sews
Don’t let them take root, these lies are your foes.
I bless your soft hands with God’s loving touch
To share with this world, it needs Him so much
With strength and compassion and healing inside,
Let God use your hands and in His love abide
I bless your cute feet to be steadfast and sure
His feet took the nails that keep you secure
When sometimes you stumble, and losing your way
He draws you back close, He won’t let you stray.
I bless your whole life with eternal joy
As life takes you forward my sweet baby boy.
Remember I love you, deep down to my core
Live life with abandon, in Him free to soar.
