This poem is going around my Facebook and breaking my heart! :(
I didnâ€™t know your name, I never saw your face,
I never got to see you smile, or get to watch you play.
I never got to walk with you or watch you board the bus,
I never got to kiss your head and tell you that youâ€™re loved.
But on this tragic day, youâ€™ve a place in my heart.
Your smile was robbed, your laughter stole away,
But it is upon angelâ€™s wings, you rest your head today.
Take peace now, innocent one, worry not yourself,
For it is in the arms of a nation, your love can now be felt.
We may never understand the evil, which struck your life today,
But know that through remembrance, youâ€™re never far away.
â€˜Tis your turn now, our little ones,
To smile down from above,
Kiss mommy, kiss daddy,
Tell them itâ€™s okay,
and they are forever loved.
Now in peaceful rest, may you take, your place amongst the stars.
Your memory never forgotten, always safe, kept in our hearts.
It is with a solemn duty, to you we make this vow,
To find the evil you met today, And with vengeance strike it down.
~~To the memory of all 27 of the innocent lives lost today at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, with special dedication to the children. A nation mourns your loss today, our thoughts and prayers to your families and your community. May you all rest in peace.
