What if that mother had been more alert.
What if her child didn't tell her he was hurt.
I wonder what went through heads that day.
When the man entered the school, while children were at play.
Phone calls made, tears displayed, only if they knew that would be their last day.
Heaven gained a bit of joy as the angels inquire I have your baby boy.
As mothers and fathers comfort one another,
They never forget how much they love each other.
It could have been a better way, but God has His own timing each and every day.
