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 Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
