Shed A Tear (For The Children)

Shed A Tear (For The Children)

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*

Dedicated to those that have lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary on 12/14/12


Shed a tear for the homeless,

With no roof placed over their sleepy heads.

Starving for love and affection,

Or just a meal before they go to bed.


Shed a tear for the suffering and innocent,

Searching for any reason unknown

Forced into a life of abuse and darkness

Without love, they are always alone.


Illness consumes health,

Without a chance to go out and play

Lying in a hospital bed without a treatment

Waiting for Death to have it's day.


Shed a tear for the children,

As ghostly images of what could have been

Wait for Santa Claus and gifts under the tree

Here no longer because life wore too thin.


I can't help but wonder why this is all so,

When humanity will open their eyes and see

The suffering in our world,

For the children there should not be.


As you sit beneath your Christmas tree,

With the joy dwelling in your eyes.

Please remember those that died by humanity's sins

Spending their Christmas in Heaven's skies.
