Little children in bright colours
Painting rainbows on a wall
Hearts and minds filled with dreams
The most special days of all.
Little hearts filled with hope,
Smiles upon their faces,
Painting pictures of their lives
Dreaming of dresse and laces.
Little children wearing sunshine
In their clothing and in their hair,
Dreaming of a happy future
Please protect the children
Keep them safe from harm.
Let them sleep in safety
Cuddled up snug and warm.
