The Best Place

He would have been four years old today,

if the lord would not have seen fit to take him away.

My baby boy only a few hours old,

Heaven is the best place for him I'm told.

He never got to cry, smile, or coo.

I think of all that might have been.

I still fell the cold.

My baby boy only a few hours old,

Heaven is the best place for him I'm told.

I would have loved to call his name

Or see Daddy showing him how

To play a ball game.

I pause and that thought I hold.

My baby boy only a few hours old

Heaven is the best place for him I'm told.

Yes, my heart hurts and it feels as if my hopes been sold,

But heaven is the best place I'm told.

In Loving memory of my son Jonathan Bailey Blankinshp
