Laid Low

Updated on December 20, 2012

GOD BLESS THE CHILDREN....


All the pretty angels came down to show

the love of the Lord,

when the loved ones... were laid so low

The sorrow and anguish..

made all of them cry

Everyone asking ...

why, my Lord... why ?

No one can explain the reason ..

with even a lie

the suddeness...

when young lifes die

The tears do flow..

like a river swollen high


Many hearts express disgust,

when young lifes are taken...

while at the same time

spirits are forsaken


Mothers and Fathers .. hug your children tight

tell them you love them, with all your might

For you never know... what tomorrow brings

for whom the bells will toll, and when the Angels will sing

for the child... the brother, sister or who

does the sound of the angels... make us so blue.

      Sad Michael, but beautifully said. Everything says tomorrow could be the day and we can live like it is without an ounce of sadness. ^

      Hi Michael. Yet another lovely peice of writing. Very sad but ultimately true and only goes to point out that life is so fragile and that we should make everyday count. ................... Chris

      All I can say is I look forward to a new age on the horizon, it is coming in the near future, possibly five years or less, where this kind of thing will never happen again. My heart and prayers go out to all the families who have suffered so much. And the precious children who are having to cope with such a tragedy, their innocent schoolmates.

      Could I share a video that makes a lot of sense and offers real answers to this tragedy? I think it could help a lot of folks right now.

      It is so sad that young lives are taken in such a tragic way. You wonder why. Well, God bless the families that are left without their sweet child or family member, some day they will meet again. Blessings.

      Deboah, thank you for the read. It is so hard to comment on topics such as this.... for words can not explain the lunacy of some peoples actions .

      A beautiful tribute Michael. Neither the lunacy nor the pain have any sense about them. Your prayer is what we are left with, thank you for the reminder.

      Voted up and beautiful.

      I missed this one, but I am so very glad I found it now! Thank you for this beautiful prayer. When the hearts of men know nothing of love, this is the result, but your heart knows of love. None are guaranteed a tomorrow, and nothing can make sense of such acts against our precious children. Thank you for this write.

      Voted up++++ sharing

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
