There’s Something

There’s something in their eyes
There’s something in their hearts
There’s something in their souls
That longs to hear a story
There’s something in their eyes,
That sparkles like a gem;
Each time I tell them of a book I’d like to read to them.
There’s something in their hearts,
A yearning deep within;
They’re hoping I will take them to a place they’ve never been.
There’s something in their souls,
Which craves the chance to meet;
The characters who seem to somehow make their lives complete.
There’s something in their eyes
There’s something in their hearts
There’s something in their souls
That longs to hear a story.
                                 Steven L. Layne

Let’s take a moment to remember all the children of the world whose lives have been taken too soon and will never again experience the joy of story.  Read to a child.  It’s one of the best gifts you can give.
