Give Your Child A Heart.


Give your child a heart, Oh, Mother
Give your child a heart.
Heart that makes them kind
Oh, Mother, heart that rules the mind.

Give your child a heart, Oh, Mother
Give your child a heart.
Heart that makes them wise
Oh, Mother, heart that fights the vice.

Give your child a heart, Oh, Mother
Give your child a heart.
Heart that tells them to care
Oh, Mother, heart that tells them to share.

Give your child a heart, Oh, Mother
Give your child a heart.
Heart that nourishes the hurt
Oh, Mother, heart that consoles the heart.

    In poetical sense heart the centre of thoughts though in science the thing is different. Here the poet writes about heart and it is beautiful. (Report) Reply

    You have poured out your heart in simple words and with a sweet message. Perfect in rhyme and rhythm. It music is appealing. Last two lines can be improved upon little for the proper use of the article (the hurt) . (Report) Reply

    An uplifting poem with a beautiful message. It reminds me of the saying: 'Mothers hold their childrens hands for a while, but their hearts forever'. S :) (Report) Reply
