Nobody's Child


As I was slowly passing
An orphan's home one day
I stopped for just a little while
To watch the children play.

Alone a boy was standing
And when i asked him why
He turned with eyes that could not see
And he began to cry.

I'm nobody's child
I'm nobody's child
Just like the flowers
I'm growing wild.
No mammy's kisses
And no daddy's smile.
Nobody wants me
I'm nobody's child.

No mammy's arms to hold me
Or soothe me when I cry
Sometimes i feel so lonesome
I wish that I could die.
I´d walk the streets of heaven
Where all the blind can see
And just like all the other kids there'd be a home for me.

I'm nobody's child
I'm nobody's child
Just like the flowers
I'm growing wild.
I've got no mammy's kisses
And no daddy's smile.
Nobody wants me

I'm nobody's child.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
