I had not sobbed in many years
Until today brought floods of tears;
The Newtown news of massive death
Has barely let me catch my breath;
The callous killer shot those kids,
Committing what our God forbids.
Attacks on tiny tots we find,
Had hate and evil intertwined.
For students, dawn won’t come again
(With principal – a mother hen.)
When tragedies like this occur,
It’s almost too much to endure.
Now parents, all across the land,
Should take the time for hugs unplanned.
