Her eyes so sad, her smile so sweet
She stood there staring at her feet
This tiny child so motionless,
I had to pause, I must confess.
She didn’t speak, no not a word
I wondered if she even heard
I thought she must be in distress
So silent in her wornout dress.
Too many children are alone
Neglected, lost, left on their own
I beg you God forget them not
You are the only hope they’ve got !
