Lady Visits Orphan
Tell your orphan not to cry.
Say, you’d stay if you had the time.
Say that your loved ones will always be here.
Say, without a smile, you won’t visit next year.
Tell your poor orphan to take a breath.
Put your hand on his cheek. Put your hand on his chest.
Say that you love your poor, poor boy.
Hold up his drawing, wave—he’s your joy.
