We know of the covenants and promise too
But would know of naught without the gift of life from you.
A committed father and a mother of love
One of strength and one as the dove.
It is for the promise and time that we prepare
For everyone to avoid evil and do what is fair.
'Suffer not the children to come to me'; was said
As shepherd of a flock we must protect and keep them fed.
Not one child should be denied their potential by intent
Rather we share and uplift, for that is the reason they are sent.
One can do much but nations can open many doors
To share part of their bounty and receive even more.
This world's future comes from the care of the very young
The mind is the source and seed given every one.
Who among us would allow any child to cry
Every life must be nurtured else earthly time; is a lie.
Mankind kows what is evil and where it begins
Not to protect and provide for each child their greatest sin.
