In Memory of Newtown, on the eve of Sandy Hook:

I read the news today
Lives, gasps, smiles, tears
On the eve of Newtown
We have lost 194
Children we love
From in our homes across America
~
When we imagine the skies
Over Sandy Hook,
A sunny glorious morning
Cannot bring back the lives
While we cherish their innocent souls.
From in our homes across America
~
We will recall stories
Of the lives of kids we
Took for granted
Only for a moment
Playing the sweet sounds of love
From in our homes across America
~
Florida, Texas
In California
Just today in Colorado
Nevada lost a mentor
Along with countless other names
From in our homes across America
~
When we realize
Our lives are precious
Seems only a notion
While a memorial
Grieves the reality of love
From in our homes across America
~
Outside the classic
Lighting drapes a world
In full celebration
In delightful
Appreciation
From in our homes across America
~
‘Respect Each Other’ is the plea
Monsignor Weiss of Newtown
Prepares a community
For a reckoning
Of lost lives and sweet hearts
From in our homes across America
~
As holidays arrive always remember,
From in our homes across America.
