Ραφαέλλα Μαραγκού

    Within a darkened quiet house,
    tucked in a lonely bed.
    Upon a dirty pillowcase, there lies
    a tiny head.
    A precious face that knows no love,
    in tattered rags she’s sleeping
    While high above, the angels
    watching her are weeping

    This world with all its troubles,
    the woes we can’t disguise
    Has one thatgrieves my very soul,
    the pain in a child’s eyes.
    So trusting with their innocence as
    they try to make their way.
    Through all the problems little
    ones have got to face each day.

    So trusting to my warning, ’tis
    wisdom that you lack.
    Each day you show no love is lost;
    you cannot get them back.
    You’ve been entrusted from above,
    you’ll answer for your deeds.
    Take time to show you love them,
    fulfill your child’s needs.

    Little eyes that stare so blankly
    filled with loneliness
    Caused by lack of loving care…
    parental heartlessness
    Longing for one gentle touch a tiny
    hint of praise
    But nothing comes to ease the pain
    you won’t just change your ways.

    Or stand one day condemned you
    must, no way you can explain
    Of why these gifts from God
    were treated cruelly with disdain.
    While high above in heaven, the
    angels start to weep.
    Fpr little ones throutout the
    world, who cyr themselves to
    sleep.

    Please listen to my warning, ’tis
    wisdom that you lack.
    Each day you show no love is lost;
    you cannot get them back.
    You’ve been entrusted from above,
    you’ll answer for your deeds.
    Take time to show you love them,
    fulfill your child’s needs.
