O, Dry Your Glistening Tears

God has them in his arms All the children and their heroes O, the tragedy of New town My heart is broken . . . I weep and pray for the little ones And those who died with them And even those who survived Each day a reliving pain . . . Mourned throughout the world The grief and suffering unbearable God, it is so hard to fathom the evil My heart is bleeding tears . . . All those babies and the adults Safe within Heavens gate now Each with delicate and beautiful wings Angels shining bright . . . I pray for their families and friends There is no answer to the question why You can ask forever and never know This existence borrowed time . . . God, is our world so hopeless and evil That our babies must die, needlessly And those who try to protect them O, dry your glistening tears . . . In memory of Charlotte, Daniel Olivia, Josephine, Ana, Dylan, Madelaine Catherine, Chase, Jesse, James, Grace, Jack, Noah, Caroline Jessica, Avielle, Benjamin, Allison, Emilie and Rachel, Lauren, Mary, Victoria, Dawn, and Anne Verse December 23, 2012 For The Contest, In Memory Of . . . Angels Of Heaven

    Another beautiful tribute to them. I like how you wrote their names at the end, Constance. Keeping them in our minds.

    This is a very sad write for an extremely sad occurrence! I hate that this happened, I am so heartbroken that this was true, that this occurred, how terrifying! This poem expresses the pain so eloquently and shows compassion for the heartbroken! The angels are there, and they are safe now, and never to experience pain again, just joy and happiness! But here on Earth we still experience the pain and suffering of that day and the loss of the innocence! This is a wondrous poem Constance,Great Work!
