I see

Written by: Ashley Plotczyk

I see a beginning of a smile
a wave of hello
and this lets me know
an orphan can be happy 

I see a church boy placing a note 
into a homeless mans' hands  
and the man beginning to smile 
and this lets me know 
a prayer does go a long way 

I see a young mom in a shelter 
and a baby girl in her arms
and this lets me know 
a family needs to stick together 

Lastly, I see a college student 
walking across stage peering into the seats
looking for his father who is not there 
and this lets me know 
that determination comes a long way
