A Child Is Born

A child is born…
but is that news?
Children are born every day
with hopes and dreams.

A child is born…
dressed in warm clothes,
laid in a soft bed,
surrounded by love.

A child is born…
sheltered from war,
from violence and hate,
covered with fear.

A child is born…
abandoned and left alone…
no one with the strength
to care.

What do we see in each child’s face?
Hopes and dreams of a better world?
a child who belongs to each of us?

A child was born to us so long ago…
a child is born to us each day…
what is our wish for each one?

In each face may we see
love…
peace…
hope…
