Twenty Stars

Written by: George Aul

Twenty stars now in the sky...
much too young to say "Goodbye,"
your lives we will not forget,
your dreams will live--no regret.

Our tears are for what's been done--
a man killing with a gun;
we cry because you are gone,
that pain will go on and on.

Your families will miss you,
our nation will miss you too;
the sadness will not relent
for lives too young to be spent.

You are in a better place--
where love has infinite space,
God will wrap you in His care...
just like your own teddy bear.
