Two Little Orphans
- 100 Views
Two little children, a boy and a girl Sat by an old church door The little girl's feet Were as brown as the curl That fell on the dress that she wore The little boy's clothes were all tattered and torn They shone beneath his blue eyes "Why don't you go home To your mommy," I said And this was the maiden's reply "Mommy's in heaven Angels took her away Left Tim and I all alone We've no one to love us And daddy is dead And our darling mother is gone" Mommy got sick Angels took her away To dwell in those mansions so bright She said she would come For her children some day And I guess she's coming tonight The sexton came early To ring the church bell And found them Beneath the snow white The angels made room for the orphans to dwell Up in heaven with their mommy that night
