The Thoughts of Loved Ones

January 10, 2009

Every time people think about loved ones
You think about family
Never thinking about the ones that need to be loved
Are the ones that are suffering
Each day they wish someone could just take the time
To think about them
They are the ones with no idea
How they’re going to make it through the day
They are the ones who have to fight for their lives
Knowing that tomorrow might not be guaranteed
They are the ones whose father left them
At such a tender age
Those are the people who should be in mind
When the thought of loved one comes across your head
Because they too deserve a loved one
Instead of someone who will send them packing to their grave
Be the one to stand out in the crowd
Instead of following the path blind mice can’t see.
For the bible says, "Greater is he that is within in me."
Never forget these words
Because they mean more to the weak than the strong
I did indeed write this before I set my mind at ease
