My child, my treasure,
I love thinking of you, by God’s mercy, in that place where you are alive—full and free.
For you were not made for this land at all.
You were made for a different land, a better land, a heavenly one.
And here, I have gained greater love for the Lord and His life through the gift of knowing you.
Sharing our beloved Lord Jesus unites us, in time and in eternity.
