United States

Every child needs kisses.

That gentle caress of a Mother.

That loving touch of a Father.

But when there are no more blesses to be given

Then children go without their simple kisses.

Then those children grow up, starved of affection.

Those young women and men search for a love to grow.

They think they find what they want, but it’s never what they need.

They search and search, not knowing what it is they seek.

Out of many there may be one,

That child will fight to grow without love.

And when they are grown, they’re still a child.

But that child has another child.

Only this child will be loved.

This child will never know what it’s like to grow without simple kisses.
