sweetest souls on earth

the sweetest souls on earth we see
come packaged different from you and me
we watch them every single day
they are lower functioning in every way

yet their precious value calls out to us
not to leave them  in the dust
we wonder so as days goes by
if these darling souls inside do cry

wanting more touch, wanting more care
is it ever more than they can bear?
its easy for some just to let them be
this bothers us, so we raise a plea

do not forget our tender brothers
remember our sisters, these gentle others
please dont let them all alone
they have so little to call their own

invest a bit more in their hearts
see they are more than the sum of their parts
a kind word, a walk, a caring touch
these easy things can mean so much

the sweetest souls on earth we see
come packaged different from you and me
we point to them, oh hear our cry
they are just as important as you or i

if we feel compassion for those less fortunate than ourselves, how much more do those less fortunate than us feel compassion for those less fortunate than them. they know first hand the tole such things take on a soul.

keep raising the standard ya'll. we need you to remind us~ and the world~ to care!
