Butterfly angels

Stoney Creek News

Mary Graziano wrote this poem for the children and teachers who were killed in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School to show that Canadians were also mourning

Butterfly angels now in heaven

Now walk with Jesus in peace,

This Christmas their families will struggle and mourn

Precious lives, their tears won’t cease.

Why!! Oh Why!! Did this happen

In a blink of an eye they were gone,

Their principal and teachers who tried to protect

Six stars in heaven for their glory truly shone.

Their wings like a butterfly, just emerging

But were stolen, shattered beyond belief,

A part of us inside is broken

The world is in shock with much grief.

Yes, butterfly angels in heaven

Such wonderful, beautiful souls,

Twenty six roses to show love and support to you

Innocent children and teachers lives he stole.

I write these words for the families

To let them know so many people care,

Their innocent children, principal and teachers

Will be remembered in so many prayers.
