I was just looking over the news articles again on CNN, mainly the pictures, and it stirred something in me that made me write this poem. Writing this down helped me find some sense of comfort.. I hope it helps you, too.
A gift from above, the blessing of a child,
A future of promise, imaginations run wild,
Innocence within, full of laughter & play,
Growing & learning, each passing day.
On this day, we weep, with anger & despair,
All the unanswered questions that fill the air,
For families, for the loved ones they’ve lost,
Helpless children, paying the ultimate cost.
As we grieve, and the tears keep flowing,
May we find peace, and comfort in knowing,
These angels are now safe in our Fathers’ arms,
Free of suffering, void of fear, safe from harm.
