God and the Orphan

A child all alone in the world tonight Sad and filled with much fright Nowhere for his little head to lay To get through the night is what he prays Losing those he loved so dear Searching for hope far and near Looking into the eyes of many Praying to find, just one friendly How he hates being alone If only a family to call his own To be granted his prayer from above To be surrounded with much love Weary and hungry with nothing to eat No shoes to warm upon his feet In the distance, a building with a steeple Maybe inside, some caring people Opening the door, to take a peek Then suddenly, the sound of a creak Catching the attention of only a few He took a step back, wondering what to do As he stands before them, all tattered and torn His humbled appearance, weary and worn With his head bowed, looking toward the floor He ever so gently lets go of the door A couple ran with their arms to embrace They could see the sadness upon his face His lips quivered, he began to shake Inside he had endured much heartache Momma and daddy left, sometime ago In this world, I am all alone If only I had someone to care Someone to love me, my love to share This child unaware in his search God guided him to this little church A man and woman had prayed and prayed A child of their own, God to make a way Though much sadness fills our land When trusting in God's guiding hand Miracles happen every day When before our Lord, we kneel and pray Needless to say, this is a happy ending Yet not all turn to God in prayer depending When things seem bad, and God seems far away Ask yourself, did you take time to pray Many children alone tonight Needing the help of God's guiding light Circumstances can change day by day Miracles happen when we pray A momma and daddy, he had received Just as he asked, on bended knees A little boy to call their son A miracle sent from Heaven above Written by: Donetta Harless Wednesday, August 10, 2016
