May Fifth, Two-thousand-seven

A vicious storm left devastation

Nine innocent lives were stolen

Dozens left injured

Thousands left in despair

Splintered homes

Vehicles smashed

Crops ruined

A town of 1500 left in shambles

Families left homeless

Businesses left without walls

Churches left without a roof

A lone standing wall holds a photo of Jesus

A wedding dress went untouched

A child's teddy bear survived

Communities gather to mourn

This all seems so surreal

The love of the victims will thrive and grow

As the town will survive
