A Poem from a Friend.
6 years ago

"The Day no child would cry" One day, there will be a time, When no child would have to cry. When all the tears would dry, And the smiles would then appear. Did you ever begin to wonder?What it would be like If a child didn’t have to cry? To feel pain, sorrow, or emptiness inside. We all grow from learning, Right from wrong, Why would we hurt a child? Children need our love and guidance. We as their parents, Are taught to provide that. We need to learn to give, A child a day of smiles, lots of joy and laughter, And the freedom, to be a child, Never to lay our troubles on them. When a day comes and a child doesn’t cry, it will be the day the world is a brighter place, A child’s smile lights up everything, We wouldn’t need the sun or moon, or the stars above, We’d have the smile of a child. It’s what this entire world truly needs. And we can make that happen, If we just let a child be, Who he or she wants to be. So deep down, Remember? A child grows from us, So lets give them reasons to smile, Never a day of tears or pain, No child should have to cry. Kelley Herrick 1999

Beautiful and very true

A very beautiful poem but sad. It would be wonder if no child would no longer have to feel the physical and emotional pain of abuse.
