A Child’s Plea

1152349079_h9hjz6rp1_s

Give the child your care
It can never be too much
Take him in your arms
He needs your tender touch

Give the child a smile,
Don’t rob him of it
Give the child your love,
At home and in the street

Give the child a hero
He does not need a villain
Show the child life’s beauty
He’s too young to know its pain

Give the child your ears,
He has a lot to share
The child needs a friend
He needs you to be there

Give the child a voice,
He needs to be heard
Don’t merely show him the way,
He needs to be led

Give the child your shoulder,
He needs them to lean on
The child is weak and frail
He needs you to feel strong

Give the child your all
Please do hold nothing back
Never turn your back on him
The world is cruel and dark

  1. This is beautiful 🙂 Simple, touching, and a proper guidance for how children should be raised.
    Bless you.

    **on the 3rd line of the 6th stanza, you write “Child’s is…” I think you meant “child’s” or just “child is”
    (you should edit this part of the comment out).
