Poem for Sandy Hook

January 11, 2013 

I have composed a poem for the children of Sandy Hook and the people of Newtown, Conn., and I certainly hope that this poem provides comfort to all who read it.

When you look at the rainbow after a rainstorm and the many

Colors that appear remember that your child is showing their love

For you and all the others and that they do not judge.

When you look into the sky at sunset or dawn’s early

Light, look for the beautiful pink clouds that adore

The morning or evening sky, this too is your child telling

You that you will be okay and that they are fine too.

When the raindrops begin to fall, do not become sad.

This is their way of telling you that they love

You and all of God’s works no matter how

Great or how small.

When the wind kisses your face as you walk down

The street remember this is your child telling you

That you were one of the many people who cared and that they

Admired you for your honesty and were not

Judgmental to anyone else as they

Were not judgmental to anyone they met.

And when the sun warms your face throughout

The day just remember that this is your child, who is close at hand

To provide you with a helping hand and to guide you wherever

Life should take you and always remind us how

Wonderful you were to them and all others that you will meet throughout life.
