For A Little Boy Who Cried Over A Bird
By Guila Manchester

Because you cared,
The world's a little better.
Although the hurt
was hard to understand.
Perhaps inside
the little bird had sickness
It's death was quick;
It may have been God's plan.

Don't be ashamed to care
as you grow older.
God sees the sparrow fall,
as you and I.
It's right to care
what happens to His creatures,
and when you care enough,
it's right to cry.
