Remember the Children

Remember the children
Abused and left to die
Allover the world

Girl in Delhi
Innocent child of five years
Abducted then raped

Infant in Sacramento
Found dead in trash can
Abandoned by mother

Boy in Paisley
Neglected by drug addict mom
15 months old

Tears fall today
For all the little children
Tears fall today
