“Fear Not, My Child,” Ensign, Oct. 2013, 67

Fear Not, My Child


came to us from God—

a child so pure

that in your trip to earth

you didn’t need to stay and prove to Him

that you would do His will.

God only needed someone willing

to create for you a home—

and then to let you go.

How blessed are we,

for He has chosen us.

And though we weep,

peace comes in knowing

that death will only bring

the sleep that wakens you to life again

to breathe the warmth of paradise.

Fear not, my child.

We will be together soon

and hold you in our arms—

encircled in celestial love

that unites us with our God.
