Dear God,
I have a Mommy who loves me
Some Children don't, it makes me sad
I have a Daddy who is strong and protective
Some Children don't, it makes me sad
I have a dog who's fun to play with
Some Children don't, it makes me sad
I remember beautiful lullabies that were sung to me
Some Children don't, it makes me sad
I love books because my parents red me so many
Some Children don't, it makes me sad
I know the warmth of hugs and kisses
Some Children don't, it makes me sad
I have good food, and medicine when needed
Some Children don't, it makes me sad
I have hopes and dreams
Some Children don't, it makes me sad
I dream of no more child abuse
So there will be no more reasons to be sad
Amen
