The Love Of Children - Poem by Dena C. Broadus

Who will love the children
when something does go wrong?
Who will soothe their many fears?
Who will sing them a song?

Who will tell the children, that
it is alright for them to dry,
When someone tries to hurt them
their fears they need not hide.

Who will see their innocence, is that
of a dove,
Who will ask the question, who can
take advantage of a sweet child's love?

(written in memory of all the abused and molested children who were afraid to tell.)
