Are there rocking chairs in Heaven where little babies go?

Do the angels hold you closely and rock you to and fro?

Do they talk silly baby talk to get a smile or two,

and sing the sleepy lullabies I used to sing to you?

My heart is aching for you, my angel child so dear.

You brought so much joy into my life, the short time you were here.

I know you’re in a happy place, and in God’s loving care.

I dream each night I’m rocking you in Heaven’s rocking chair.
