194 Souls … Counting

photo

I read the news today

Lives, gasps, smiles, tears

On the eve of Newtown

We have lost 194

Children we love

From in our homes across America

~

When we imagine the skies

Over Sandy Hook,

A sunny glorious morning

Cannot bring back the lives

While we cherish their innocent souls.

From in our homes across America

~

We will recall stories

Of the lives of kids we

Took for granted

Only for a moment

Playing the sweet sounds of love

From in our homes across America

~

Florida, Texas

In California

Just today in Colorado

Nevada lost a mentor

Along with countless other names

From in our homes across America

~

When we realize

Our lives are precious

Seems only a notion

While a memorial

Grieves the reality of love

From in our homes across America

~

Outside the classic

Lighting drapes a world

We are in celebration

In delightful

Appreciation of their eyes

From in our homes across America

~

Respect Each Other’ is the plea

Monsignor Weiss of Newtown

Prepares a community

For a reckoning

Of lost lives and sweet hearts

From in our homes across America

~

Our children, our breath, our … remember!

From in our homes across America.
