A BIG HEART
He was a small man but only in height,
He would lose his wife as a child was born.
Lou was his name, a man so kind,
Trying to survive, taking care of his daughter.
A job was needed, treated like some kind of freak,
Turned away, desperate, he would steal for a meal.
This is not who he was, why are people so ignorant and mean,
Confined to jail by one who did not care, a much-needed favor.
A daughter in danger, this little man with a big heart was needed,
Risk his life he would, even for those who did look down upon,
A big heart in a man who did appear to stand taller than all.
