I know we are all praying for the families of Sandy Hook, here's a little poem I wrote for the families:
Off To Heaven
by Christine Calabrese
Off to heaven now you go,
Angels usher there we know,
We are here and see you fly,
Off to heaven as we cry.
We will miss your smiling faces,
The comfort of your warm embraces,
Off you go now little ones,
Angels wings up to the Son.
He is there and all the rest,
On His knee you’ll soon be blest,
And Mary’s heart is open wide,
She will guide you by her side.
With heavy hearts we bid your parting,
Little lives just only starting,
Heaven’s meadows lush and green,
Call you to their playing scene.
Angels guard you now forever,
Safe from harm and each endeavor,
Heaven’s doors are open wide
As they guide you there inside.
Sad and sorrowful our weeping,
Safe now in the Father’s keeping,
As you watch us from above,
Sending us your precious love.
Please forgive us little ones,
Holy Spirit and the Son,
Help us now to love you there,
Resting in the Father’s care.
