A Time to Care

A man and his son
seeking time alone
plan a trip
far from home

A time to learn
A time to share
A time to reach out
A time to care

Suitcases and dreams
packed tightly into their car
who could have known
they wouldn't make it that far

Dreams shattered instantly
by a drunken stranger
the man and his son
never aware of the danger


Now the widow grieves
for her husband and mangled son
trying to comfort her other children
Praying for answers from the Almighty One

Why do we hurt each other
Who has the right
How can these things happen
When will we finally stand up and fight


For 

A time to learn
A time to Share
A time to reach out
A time to care
