A Lonely Path

A lonely path, in the dark it moves on It meanders within the deep, dense fog Along the way there are many roses Some of which lay on an old decayed log Twenty-seven in all, each an angel All of which had their life cut way too short An ending that was abrupt and so quick Tears run down my face I sadly report No more is there any children’s laughter The families weep while in such great pain It seems that when things like this do happen The days are always darkest in the rain May we can console them as best we can Light a candle in honor of these few If we could all band together as one And show our love, this is all we can do

    I read this twice, each time it left me in shock, pain shaired, sad loss of innocent lives.Keeps on happening and is tragic every time.

    awesome write Russell,,,, since I was little girl I've always believed innocents lost are truly angels who have come down and give up their life. So the rest of us would show more compassion, always believed that. You have a blessed Christmas ;}
