A couple years ago there were a lot of school shootings going on. I wrote a poem for the souls of the departed.

Your hearts have stopped beating

Your lungs stopped breathing


We’ll give your souls

To our praying lords


Your lives will be cherished

This day will not be finished


We must laugh to love our dearly departed

No more tears shall be started


You are supported

Parents of the children departed


Revenge isn’t an option

Dear families of the children


Forever to be loved

Forever to be held


In our hearts forever

For those we held dear


Oh dear Children

You will never be forgotten


But I will not remember you for your death

Not with a single breath


I will remember you for the living you have done

Because now you are gone
