Child

Little child, why do you cry?

When the birds sing, and there are no clouds

In the sky?

You should be smiling

Not wrapping yourself in a blanket of tears

Woven by fingers of shadow

And fears?

--------

Little child, why do you cry?

I see darkness and pain within

Your eyes.

Don't cry when you can be full of bliss

What makes you so blue

To think you are the child no one

Will miss?

--------

Little child, why do you cry?

--------

You should live

And never die

--------

Come to me, I will dry your tears

And help you forget your past

Dark years

I will love you always

--------

Little child, don't cry.
