For Ben

Hermana Blanca's brother Benjamin was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Saturday April 11th. She of course missed the baptism, however she wrote her feelings to him in her own special way...a poem. With Benjamin's permission, I have posted it here.

For Ben

You've started, you've begun, you're on your way
Because of your choice you've entered in at the gate
But this isn't the end, this is only the start
For now is the time to serve with might, mind and heart

Now that you're clean you must try to help others
For you have so much more than seven sisters and no brothers
Go lift those that are crying and comfort those in need
Share the light you have, this is not a church of greed

You've got a new friend, live worthy of his help
Don't leave the Holy Ghost sitting up on the shelf
Pray for his guidance, he'll help you play your part
I may have Christ's name on my tag, but now it's written on your heart

I'm proud of you Ben and so is our Father in Heaven
Remember this day, just take this feeling all in
You may not be that big at this small age of eight
But just so you know, in my eyes, you're great

  1. How special. What a sweet missionary you have and I am sure Ben will really treasure that all his life.
