Reach deep into the gloom

Touch a heart that suffers from impending doom

Stretch out you hand to grab some starlight

Lower your head for the ones who lost the fight

The mind can search for answers in endless space

Your emotions can isolate you from the human race

Cry out for more but be prepared to settle for less

For only the lonely know how less is best

The child needs love that we cannot give

We throw away the future for the ones who will not stay to help the children live

How many living things have passed away?

So just a few can waste away in the slums of life with no way to re-pay all that they wasted away
