Alex



He sits at the right hand of God,
Seeming so in awe, so satisfied,
His sweet face showing pride,
To be chosen to sit by his Savior's side.

He'w been spirited from this earth,
To be lifted to his heavenly home,
The love he's found there is greater ,
Than you and I have ever known.

A family of Angels now care for him,
In a land of love and joy,
Someone is always near,
To comfort this young boy.

 Don't grieve for me,
My dear friends and loving family,
I am not alone,
My Savior has called me home.
