TO ALL LOVE'S CHILDREN
The old year is gone, the new year is here.
Now if they could only make pain disappear.
Every time she sees someone smile with delight.
She can't stop thinking why must children live in fright
Dreams of spring flowers and happy ever after.
Little puppies that fill children with laughter
These wonderful things are all around
But how do you explain to the small children
Being loved doesn't mean beaten of thrown down
People who say they care, they love you
Yet the ones who cause you pain say that too.
Trust becomes the emotion first to go
How can a child tell what are lies, pain is all
Every time she sheds a tear, she sheds two
One for pain and one because she loves you
Someday the pain will go away
And love will light the way.
