My Hidden Voice

A Child Is A Wonder

A child is a wonder, a gift from above,
and all that he needs is protection and love,
a little attention, a love that is pure,
and he will grow up to be strong and secure.

It seems very simple and so it should be,
but some are neglected; they'll never be free
to be little children, to laugh and to play,
they'll always have worry all night and all day.

If you see a child who looks all alone,
who needs some encouragement but gets none at home,
then take it upon you to do what is right,
to mentor this child and take up the fight.

Then you will find blessings,
the child will find peace,
your time will have meaning
and your life a new lease.
