The baby Abhi
Few days ago I visited a malnutrition orphanage
Age of newly born to the three years of old
Oh so adorable and beautifully created in God's image
I pray God to warm them whenever they feel cold.
Six cots each filled with a pillow and two soft toys
Oh so sweet looked at me without blinking her eyes
Interested to see a new person with a loving voice
Oh she's been taken by a family who'll be nice.
I went to another room filled with laughter and tears
Two were crying, two were sick and others were playing
Eight beds clean and neat with caring eyes and ears
Who tend to those who are in need of gentle training.
There is a boy who is nine months old
I called him 'Abhi' who is so cute and bold
Reached out to me with hands stretched out
With a smile, so how to say "NO" to such a friendly soul.
I hugged and kissed those chubby cheeks so soft
I whispered a song of Jesus' love to him
I think he liked me and I couldn't put him to his cot
Well, I too thought of bringing him home with me.
I visited on the 07/01/2013 with my big brother and his family. It was a wonderful experience. It was very sad to hear about the backgrounds of each kid before they came to the orphanage.
It's a good thought but I'm not really ready
It's a big responsibility as I'm not fit to be
My mom said that she knows what is best for me
If I want, I can sponsor and visit monthly.
