A Child’s Tears

Posted on Jan 30, 2012


A child’s tears do fall
Her cries do ring out
Helpless is her call
Innocence is she about
Small, a year old
She wants not for much
To be kept warm out of the cold
To eat breakfast and lunch
She’ll sing happily away
If she’s paid attention
Mischievous smiles everyday
She’s life’s great lesson
For a child’s tears are innocent
They fall for basic needs
When we get older
We discover hate and greed
Then our hearts grow colder

Then our hearts grow colder
And colder
With hate and greed…
