In a world so lonely,

there’s nothing more beautiful

than the birth of a little child.

In a world so hateful,

there’s nothing more uplifting

than the smile of a little child.

In a world so prideful,

there’s nothing more humbling

than the meekness of a little child.

In a world so selfish,

there’s nothing more inspiring

than the compassion of a little child.

In a world so deceiving,

there’s nothing more reliable

than the honesty of a little child.

In a world so cold,

there’s nothing more comforting

than the warm embrace of a little child.

In a world so judgmental,

there’s nothing more reassuring

than the words of a little child.

In a world so immoral,

there’s nothing more relieving

than the innocence of a little child.

In a world so heartless,

there’s nothing more irreplaceable

than the love of a little child.
