** This poem is in memory of Dawn Hochsprung, the former principal of Sandy Hook. Dawn died trying to protect teachers and students from the gunman. Dawn was a caring, selfless person, who wrote letters to her daughter . I wrote this poem in particularly towards Dawn's daughter Erica.
A beautiful dove flies to Erica's window on a sunny day.
Erica opens the window and lets the beautiful dove in.
As she holds the dove in her hands,
Erica realizes there is a note for her attached to it.
Slowly, Erica opens the note in fear,
Hi Erica, it is your mother.
I have sent a dove down to you to show my love.
I am in Heaven, but I am also in your heart helping you to let your wonderful personality shine.
Erica continue to care and enjoy life.
P.S. Erica I have always been back, I have always been in your heart.
As Erica reads the end of the letter,
Light starts coming from the card.
The dove flies away.
