Protectors of the Innocent

I. Destiny:

Little Angel;
sparkling eyes twinkling with forgiveness
though life ended painful
you lived it like a princess –
just as you were.
Beautiful child
Your presence on this earth,
Though only for a short while
Was strong and firm.

II. Elijah:

Little Prince,
smiling with dimples and laughter.
So badly are you missed,
But you live peacefully in this life’s after.
Beautiful child
an adult could never live your pain,
though here only for a short while
your smiles forever remain.

III. Grown Folks:

This is in memory of children
we were supposed to protect –
may their souls rest,
but let ours not get a night’s sleep
until justice is set
and it’s something we can
earnestly keep.
May their surviving parents find peace.
