Butterfly angels

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.
