The Dimming of Two Stars

In the twinkling of an eye
Their life as they knew it had changed
Even though their life would go on
Nothing would ever be the same

Two bright and shining stars will not
Shine on this earth anymore
Those bright, shining stars now sparkle
As they enter thru Heaven's door

We will never know what they would have become
Had they lived another day
Yet also know if they were spared
Many heartaches and pain

Parents count your blessings
As you kiss your child good-night
Never let them go without knowing
The love you have for them inside

For we never know when we leave our home
If we'll make it back safe and sound
We only know if we trust in God
Only in Him is safety found

If their parents had only known
It would be their very last day
What would they have done differently
What would they have had to say

In the twinkling of an eye
When your life is thru
I pray the words you all may hear are
Welcome Home Child, I've been waiting for you

Dedicated to the memory of the Burbank children killed on I-4 near Polk City, FL Saturday August 5, 2006
