Our hearts are with you Parkland,
Our tears are flowing, too;
It’s inconceivable, the atrocity,
That was brazenly cast on you.
It’s hard to understand why such
A monstrous thing took place;
To kill 17 people
Is a pure and sad disgrace!
The children never had a chance
To hide or get away,
But the heroes stood in front of them
And took the shots that strayed.
In every situation, there are heroes to be found,
And you discovered many, as you took a look around.
As you gaze upon the empty chairs
Which remind you of that day,
Remember all the children
Who, sadly, could not stay.
Remember all their smiles,
Or their jokes that made you laugh.
Think about your time with them,
And all the fun you had.
To the families of those who lost their lives,
Our prayers go out to you;
I can’t imagine all the suffering
You must be going through.
Every time you say their name,
Or say a prayer for them;
Remind them there will be a day
When you will meet again.
The shooter was a sick man,
He planned this for so long!
How could he not know what he planned
Was absolutely wrong?
As to the man who did this?
He will pay the price!
He will serve his penance
For the lives he sacrificed!
I know that does not ease your pain,
Of that I’m very clear;
But with God’s help, he’ll soothe you,
And comfort all your fears.
God Bless You!
