A Touch of Love – Poem

A Touch of Love

A look in darkened eyes
Reflects lost hope with an empty smile
Which cannot hide, the respect & pride
That living in poverty takes
When staying alive is an unfair fight
And another heart just breaks
This isn’t right
This isn’t life

A school child orphan
Not just hungry, but hungry to learn
A chance for tomorrow taken away
Because its food, or a priceless education
But who will pay
No mum, no dad, no means
Just an ageing generation
This isn’t right
This isn’t life

A touch of love
Can bring back the hope
A touch of love
Can rebuild the pride
A touch of love
Can bring back real life
A touch of love
Can mend a heart
A touch of love
Can bring back the smile from within
All it takes
Is A TOUCH OF LOVE
