When a child asks about the cruelty in the world.

Switch off the TV’s

Cover their ears

Wrap them in cotton wool

Drink all their tears

Drown them in fairy tales

Sing them sweet songs

Take them to places

The bad don’t belong

Bathe them in sunshine

Shower them with love

Serve them their childhood

Wearing kid gloves.

Tempting, isn't it?

When raising my lass, I was always torn on this. This, and the usual tooth fairy stuff.

A lovely little piece this though. Warming.
