My Child

When people laugh,
they don't see the hurt;
But I do.
It's MY CHILD…


When people speak
such unkind words,
they don't see the pain;
But I do.
It's MY CHILD…


When people turn away
Because they don't understand,
I do.
It's MY CHILD…


So many tears,
so many broken hearts,
they don't feel;
But I do.
It's MY CHILD…


A simple smile,
just one kind word
could ease the hurt.
Oh, don't they see;
I do.
It's MY CHILD…


Please understand
My fervent plea;
Think before you speak.
It could be YOUR CHILD…
