One night up in Heaven high,
God had a thought that made Him cry.
And as the tears rolled down his cheek,
the more He thought, the more He’d weep.
As God stood up, He did not see,
one tear had dropped, as if to flee.
An Angel who was standing near,
with trembling voice, did speak in fear.
“Excuse me, Sir.” He started to speak.
“But, I see a tear has left your cheek.”
“Oh, so it has.” God answered He,
“Please go and fetch it back for me.”
From Heaven, things aren’t often dropped,
so this one tear he’d have to stop.
The Angel sped down towards the Earth
to catch the tear before it’s birth.
And as the teardrop he did find,
still falling…God said “Never mind.”
“Just let it go, and we will see,
the life that this teardrop might be.”
“And bring my diary, and I’ll write
about what happened here tonight.”
“But, before you do that, stop and see
the mother of this child to be.”
“Apologize for this mistake,
she hadn’t planned this path to take.”
“And take a moment to explain
that a nice name might be Audrey Jane.”
Dear diary…dropped a tear today…named it Audrey Jane…
