Faces Don't Exemplify

God bless the children without a home,
those who've been left to make it on their own.
Teardrops settle on tiny cheeks,
doesn't anyone care why he or she weeps?

God bless the children without a home,
will they grow up to go it alone?
Never to know the love of a Mother or Dad,
doesn't it touch your heart and make you sad?

God bless the children without a home,
never taught how to use a brush or a comb.
Don't know how to express their love,
won't give another a kiss or a hug.

God bless the children without a home,
those who seek love but are lonesome.
Yearning for a family...all their own,
afraid they'll never find a place to atone.

God bless the children without a home,
we may never know how it is to be all alone.
Faces don't exemplify a real identity,
no warm love in life can create an infamy.

I'm not sure there is anything/anyone in this world that touches my heart more than hurting children. The shame is that we don't like to even think about it. If more of us did, and did so more often, perhaps there wouldn't be so many of them. God help us help them!
