Are You Mine?

Are You Mine?
ARE YOU MINE?
You are mine
You little heart that beats
Inside of me.
 
My little one
My special secret
My little life
My neshama
My tzaddik
My potential prodigy
 
You are mine
A gift
Wrapped from Hashem
Packaged in me
I feel it in my soul
 
But then your little heart
My little heart
Stopped
 
He wished it so
 
You returned to Him
Precious and Pure
Unstained and Unsullied
By the ink of this world
 
My little one
 
You were
Mine
 
Can you just leave me
A deep aching chasm
In the valley of my heart?
 
My precious neshama
Go to Hashem near the kisei Hakoved
Where you;
Unstained and unsullied
By the ink and filth and dirt
Of this world
Most certainly are
 
Beg Him
Plead with Him
We should know no more pain
 
For now,
Hashem has taught me
כל זמן שהנשמה בקרבי
מודה אני לפניך
 
For life is not mine
It is His
