Why did you come here my lovely child?
To this world where evil runs so wild,
Where cruel despots rule unchecked,
Where callously so many lives are wrecked.
The innocence in your eyes so dear,
The joy on your face so clear,
The love in your heart so sweet,
The trust with which, the world you meet.
Such treasures are Oh! So rare,
In a world whose larder of virtue is bare,
You belong to a better place than this,
A place that must you, sorely miss,
But do stay and light this darkness for me,
Let me through your eyes true happiness ...
