Poem Memorial

Thursday, December 20, 2012

I am sure most of you have heard about the shooting at the school where all those little kids were killed. I heard about this poem on TV and looked it up. I think it is a beautiful tribute to those little ones and wanted to share it with you all.

Twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."

    Thanks for sharing. I couldn't get through it without a tear. It's disturbing that such things happen. One can only hope that it will never happen again.

    Oh--- This is truly wonderful and I am so glad that I saw this today. It is indeed an example of poetic talent, and an example of faith in our Heavenly Father....
    I believe without doubt, that our loving Father will provide a joyous home for the sweet angels who left our earth last Friday. God bless us with His comforting grace.
