A tribute to the victims of the Connecticut tragedy.
All too soon your light has gone out.
I cannot understand what it’s all about.
Why did you have to leave this way?
Oh to go back to yesterday!
I long to hear your laughter once more,
And see you bounding through the door;
To kiss your face and tuck you in.
But those moments will never come again.
My heart is broken. I can’t stop shaking;
But from this nightmare there is no waking.
They’ll lay your body ‘neath a granite stone.
That distant Heaven is now your home.
Yet you’re never really far away,
For in my heart you will forever stay.
Rest now and be free in that land above,
My flesh and blood, my child, my love.

CK 10.14.12
Dedicated to the children who lost their lives in the shooting at
Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.
