A BIG HEART

                                                                                                                    
                      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 whom 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 whom did look 
Down upon.

                                                                       A big heart in a man who did appear to stand taller 
Than all,
