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
