She was too young to understand

The problems of the world,

But with bowed head and folded hand

She whispered to her Lord.

Her words lacked the eloquence of Senators and such;

But it was plain for all to see

That she was thankful, very much.

She thanked Him for the food she ate

The roof above her head,

And then as tears poured from her eyes

This little girl said

“My brother is in Vietnam

He fights a war for peace.

People say, and I believe

That it will never cease.

Watch over him ‘till he’s back here

And I can feel his presence near”

And then her voice changed in tone

“Be with Mother and Dad – –

Heaven’s their home.”
