Angelic voices sounding from above:a sonnet dedication

Updated on August 13, 2013
Source

This is a little sonnet tribute to the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School, who passed away on the 14th of December, 2012

Source

Before the distant cross, in humble prayer,

In search of calming silence, not enough

Small angelic chorus sung from high above

“With you, we’ll be there.”

In His Time-Instrumental

“Here in His alcove, nothing remiss

Basking in His ever loving care

His to give, and ours to share,

From hence, our place of eternal bliss.”

Source

“And so he heals the wounds in time

Bridges firmly all rifts, open, gaping

With His gentle hands, so kind

Our little souls, continues, softly shaping

With caressing words that softly rhyme

Our eternal happiness he is creating.”

      4 thumbs up on this one Midget, I sent my prayers out to those families who suffered losses in this tragedy back in 2012 too, and I pray to god that none of this sort of madness ever occurs again.

      Your poetry is soothing and like a breath of fresh air, so serene, so relaxing as well. Great usage of page breaks and imagery to compliment it and provide the finishing touches, well done.

      Sharing this Jewel that I missed as well, awesome stuff!

      Dear Michelle,

      This tender tribute is the perfect read as I accepted Honey BB's challenge.

      This is the 22nd of 26 hubs I intend to read today. This hub is read in the memory of Lauren Rousseau (06-__-82). May her soul rest in peace.

      Hugs, Maria

      We can never fully feel their pain or loss, but just offer our support however we can. Thanks for sharing, Deb.

      This was beautifully written. I expected a blatant clap trap and was delightfully mistaken. Well done.

      Children are the most beautiful, innocent and loved by God. And the only thing that can console the parents at this time is the fact that God heals over time and, as you said so well, with His love. Thanks for coming by.

      Grant peace too in the hearts of those grieving, who should be rejoicing with their little innocent angels this Christmas. Help them heal in time.
