For the Child Who Cries at Night

This is for every child who cries at night
Alone with shame and pain and fright.

For every child who wants so much
To only feel a gentle touch.

For the beaten child, who cries in pain
Whose tears run silent, like a summer rain.

For the child used to satisfy lust
Who never learns to love or trust.

For the child taken from her home
And made to feel so all alone.

For the child whose home is just a shell
Where life becomes a living hell.

For the child who smiles but cannot feel
Because of scars too deep to heal.

For every child who yearns for love
I hope and pray to God above
He hears your cries and heals your pain
Never again to cry tears of rain.
