Dear Child, I called your Name,
Why do you Hide ?, it isn’t a game,
Dear Child, you are old for your years,
Why do you Hide ?, is it the Fears ?,
Dear Child, I give you my hand,
Do not Hide, be Free from this land,
Dear Child, let me share the Love,
Do not Hide, I am guided from above,
Dear Child, I can clearly see,
You are here, running to me,
Dear Child, take my hand,
You are here, Free from this land,
Dear Child, I feel your pain,
You are here, my Love will not wane,
Dear Child, let me lift your eyes,
You are here, I’ll ease your sighs.
Dear Child, too young to suffer this pain,
I will not let you see it again.
To the children of our Future, and our Dream To Be Free.
When I was little I saw you in the Zoo,
You “smiled” to say “how do you do?”,
You were tall, And also small,
Bald, and furry too,
When I was little I saw you in the Zoo.
When I was an adult I saw you in the Safari Park,
You ran free from dawn until dark,
You were striped and spotted too,
I was allowed to photograph you,
Yet your smile was hard to see,
When I was an adult had you forgotten me ?.
Now I am old and going grey,
I’m looking around,and I’m sorry to say -,
Will I ever see you again?,
Did the poachers ever refrain?,
You were all my pets you see,
You meant the World to me.
Will I ever see you again ? Do not let this happen to our wonderful world.
