Angel Tears

Once again today angel tears came our way

Because kids at play mistakenly got in a wars way

And children had to die

Angels started to cry and women wondered why

So many tears fill so many mother’s eyes.

Once again today angel tears came our way

Because kids found a way under friendly fire spray

And children had to die

Angels let their tears fall and cried for one and all

Just because so few ever hear compassion's call.

Once again today angel tears came our way

Because men were afraid and with a life differences are paid

And children had to die

Angels cried alone and children won’t be coming home

Only more dust comes from skin and bone.

God Bless you Memphispoet,
It is such an atrocity to know that all these people,lose their lives to a senseless war.The children are always the innocent victims of the decisions made by the ones that should be protecting them..Thank you for your lovely write..JGwave sad flower
