As our nation grieves for the beautiful lives we lost in Las Vegas . . .
We mourn and pay silence.
And in silence,
We pray their families may find solace in loving memories.
We light candles for their questions that can never be answered;
We offer flowers for the justice yet to serve.
We keep our heads vowed and hands clasped in the middle
For our most solemn plea to heal our hearts and find peace in forgiveness.
We surrender to tears; but we combat our fears
Embracing ourselves tight–
Reaffirming life is good even in our darkest moments;
For this, brings us together.
We let the currents of our sacred tears
Bring us to the doors of heaven
Where confetti, symphony, pretty familiar faces, smiles we missed, and good cheers are present
For more good lives, which made it to heaven,
now eternally in heaven.
