No one else...

I'm often struck with the significance of our uniqueness to God,
of how much He loves us as individuals.
With that in mind, I did a little research and found that even in identical twins 
there are no two exact copies.
One has a freckle where one doesn't, or one's face is a wee bit fuller than the other's.
Their fingerprints are not identical, and while it is said that their DNA is the same,
from what I read, their DNA eventually develops slight mutations 
caused by their individual and unique experiences and environment.
So, with all of the above tumbling around in my heart and mind, I wrote this little poem.
It's dedicated to my five uniquely special, wonderful grandchildren.

In this whole big wide world, in the whole human race
there is no one else like you, no one else with your face.
No one else with your fingerprints, no one else with your hands,
no one else with your God-designed purpose and plan.
No one else writes your words, no one else makes your art,
no one else fills your place in your Father God's heart.
No one else has your voice, no one else sings your tune,
though we all share the same sun, the same stars, the same moon.
No one else feels your feelings, knows the thoughts in your mind,
you're unique as can be, you are one of a kind.
No one else dreams your dreams, no one else cries your tears,
no one else hopes your hopes, no one else feels your fears.
No one else walks your walk, no one else lives your days,
but there's One who walks with you every step of the way.
No one else laughs just like you, sees the world through your eyes,
no one else is just like you, even if they should try.
There is only one you, you are special you see,
you are special to God, and you're special to me.
