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.

               Keith Garrett
