Will The Tears Ever Stop

Will The Tears Ever stop?

Mothers and fathers bow
With a heart that is crying
Their children and love ones
Caught up and dying
A child goes away to get
An education
Not knowing through that day
Will arise a great awaking

The enemy approaches fast
To take what is not his
A mother holds her child
With her eyes fill with tears
How did this happen
Words I cannot say
Our love ones leave home
And their tomorrow ends today

Will the tears ever stop?
Because someone didn’t care
To raise a gun, pull the trigger
And leave a lifeless body there
What can we do, to make
Our surrounding safe
Is this an issue or may be
Even a debate

Mothers and fathers crying
And asking why
Who brought forth this raged
And kissed our kids good bye
An empty room, an empty chair
An empty heart for a child who
We wished was there

Babies are precious and
Who dare take their life
Who placed an empty hole
In a parent heart at night
The children are missed 
Their family loves them a lot
So when will this end, and
Will the tears ever stop?

    The tears will never stop... because, sadly, the unlimited availability of guns will never be stopped... Good poem... Terry

    I am so sad, I am so hurt, I feel so bad. I try to understand this but there is apparently no understanding, right now. There is no excuse to take a life, an innocent life, a child life. I am left without many words today. Thank you so much for viewing this poem. I appreciate you stopping by today. May God bless you always. "IN TEARS"
