Every Child Has a Dream... Every Child Wants to Be Loved...

Every Child Has a Dream…

They want to be a “grown up”…
They want to get married like mommy and daddy did…
Become a “mommy” or “daddy” as a young child would say…
Become a doctor, firefighter, or ballerina…
They want to be like mommy and daddy…
They want to marry their mommies or daddies…
Become the president…
Become older, (like their big sister or brother)…
They want to live and see the world!

Every Child Wants to Be Loved…

Not every child does…
Not every child has a mommy and daddy…
Every child wants love…
Every child deserves love…
Not every child gets love…
Not every child gets a chance to live the life they want…
Every child knows what love is….
Every child has someone out there that would love them…
Not every child knows there is someone that would give them the love they deserve…

Every child has dream… 
Every child wants to be loved…

    This one was really soft, sweet and lovely, as only a child can be...loved it for the universal message...

    I can feel the pain of that child..I would gather them in and hold them and love them and help them to grow up to be all that they could be but I can't ...We need foster families and adoptive parents more now than ever..So many children are being affected by the use of illegal drugs..They need someone to take them and get them away from that family who is using..I am glad that I chose this one to read this A.M...Thanks for stopping by and reading and commenting on my work..Sara

    I had no idea you were so young. It makes your poem even better to know that..keep writing. BG

    Wonderful, Emily the ups and downs in a kids world. By the way it is funny how my young one at one time told me he wanted to marry when he gets older. Now he's 15 and wants to become th president. I do feel for the children that don't have dreams and love.. Enjoyed your clever thoughts,..p.d.

    What a stunning piece..It seems such a small thing to ask..and yet so many of our children are not loved. BG
