Scared young child feels all alone,
Can think of nothing except for home.

In the home is the child's mother.
The child wants to be loved by her,
Not shoved into the care of another.

The reality of a broken heart and a broken home
Has been with the child through all the years.
No one will ever know how many times the broken-
Hearted child cried so many careful tears.

Scared to feel and scared to touch,
Scared to reach out--the pain is too much.

There's no shelter for the heart the child feels
There's nowhere for the frightened little child
To hide.

The tears of the child are now all in vain.
How will the child find peace and feel at
Home again?
