My Dear Little Black Sheep

My dear little black sheep,
I see you crying in the dead of night.
You feel the pain of loneliness and believe no one knows
The depths of your despair.

While others see your uniqueness
As a sign of weakness and use it to tear you down,
Just remember you are a special and precious creation
Made wonderful and perfect just the way you are.

The world is before you
And tomorrow presents opportunities to live anew.
Do not let the past hold its power over you
As once it did.

My dear little black sheep,
I see you have found comfort this brand new morning.
You have found the joy and love you deserve
And see yourself just as God created you...

Special and precious,
Soaring on the wings of the dawn!
