                                          NEWTOWN ANGELS

                                       Written by Dennis O’Neill

The Angels waited with patience and calm, their new arrivals were soon coming home.  One by one, they could see for miles, as they knew their new arrivals would give them all smiles. 

The children and teachers ran their race and now they will rest in God’s gentle grace. Twenty little children from Newtown would sing and joy to heaven these little ones will bring.  Six adults will join in too; their chorus would add a heavenly hue. Their hearts are now open and eyes so wide, their voices will sing God’s lullaby. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, they all will sing, and joy to heaven they all will bring.  They will meet their new friends and together they will live, in a chorus of songs repeatedly give.  No more tears and no more fears, they will delightfully say, as they walk toward the Angels who cheered them this day. With anticipated joy, the children would chime, our teachers taught us well, and they spent the time.  The Angels will applaud with boisterous joy, as the names are read of each little girl and each little boy.

Their teachers are close by and joining in too, as their names were being read the
children shouted, “We love you.”  With eyes brightly open, and hearts aglow these children and teachers are welcomed to the fold.  Happy are the days from this moment on, they are home with God, they are tucked in His arms.

Lights shining brightly with no room for gloom, their talents and creations, for us,
will forever bloom.  We who love them will see them again;all these little ones are now God’s gem. Even in tragedy, love can be found. These twenty-six souls with us are forever bound.
