Goodnight Haiti


In the world of the haves verses the have not.
In a time where there seem to very little hope.
In a country where poverty is the meal that many set
down too.

Should we all say a little prayer
before we go to sleep.
And cry for the children that lives in a place.
Where the might Earth shakes, and their homes of
disappear into the rubble

Say a little pray for God to reach down.
gather their souls like a mother hen gathering her chicks before
a coming storm.
Put them in a safe place far removed from the death in the street.

Pray for the Lord to help them find away out of the darkness and
into the light.
So say a little prayer for all the little children before they go to sleep.

Say a little prayer for all the children that can't.
So God will take their souls in his hands to keep.
Goodnight Haiti

What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
