THE DAY THE SUN WILL SHINE:
(another poem I did for the orphanage
in Siret Romania)
Overhead a black cloud looms
Above an orphanage in Siret.
The undignified way the children lives are lived
Will they ever forget?
Quite a few are gone on to pastures new,
The Challange Appeal made it so.
The difference it has made to them,
In their eyes you see a glow.
Alas there are many hundreds more,
Who look to us for love.
When Oh when is the sun going to shine
From the sky above?
(Danny Boy with his hit charity appeal disc)
When the last hand is led to fredom,
When the demolition machines are set.
When there are tears of joy in everyone's eyes,
That's the day the sun will shine
A DAY WE'LL NEVER FORGET.
