�Hush little baby��

I was at some type of orphanage and a little four year old girl was walking around, for no one would pay her any attention.  She was a bit on the down syndrome side so I would imagine this to be the reason.  I went over to her, as I found her to be hurting and picked her up.  She was quiet for some time.  She eventually bonded to me as she could sense my hidden pain for her.  I spent the whole day holding her and trying to talk to her.  At the end of the day I had to put her back so she could sleep.  It would be hard.  She was tired so I put her on a sofa, that was her make shift bed.  She was OK� till I tried to sneak away.  � She woke up weeping, �No body stay with me� she cried out.  That cut so deep as I tried so hard to fight the pain, but couldn�t.  I tried so hard to fight the anguish, but my soul screamed so loud� I woke this morning only to find� it was a dream.  Yet for far too many children� it�s not.
