Little children in bright colours
Painting rainbows on a wall,
Hearts and minds filled with dreams
The most special days of all.

Little hearts filled with hope
Smiles upon their faces,
Painting the picture of their lives
Dreaming of dresses and laces.

Little children wearing sunshine
In their clothing and their hair,
Dreaming of a happy future,
Totally unaware.

Please protect the children
Keep them safe from harm,
Let them sleep in safety
Cuddled up snug and warm.
