For Every Child a Home

For every child a happy home
With food and health and safety too.
A mom and dad that love them so.
Perhaps a sibling mid the crew.

With laughter, love and potentials
To learn, and grow, and to evolve -
Till growing up into themselves,
When their own issues they can solve.

Some toys and games along the way.
The best chance at the decent schools.
An education that's bar none.
And, oh, the finest learning tools.

The home where kids know they belong,
And welcome mats lay at the door.
For whom the light is always on...
"Emblems" of love forevermore.
