Hope for Tomorrow
 
There are no words
 
No way to begin to explain
 
The horror
The shock
The pain
 
No way to begin to grasp
 
How can this happen
What were they thinking
What could have possibly been their reason
 
No way to even start
To find a way
To why
 
There are some moments
Where time itself
Seems to stop
Frozen in disbelief
Of what a single man
Can do
 
Brave men cry
Innocent children die
And all are reminded
That yes, evil can walk amongst us
And come in any shape
Or form
 
Today
Like far too many days past
We are left battered
Our worlds shattered
Our dream of security lies in pieces
Around us
For we are all reminded
No one
Or no place
Is ever truly safe
 
Father and mothers
Sisters and brothers
Friends and family
And even strangers
Gather
Seeking comfort
Not knowing
When or how this might come
 
No
There are no words today
No quick fix
For the tear in this fabric
 
Yes
With time
Care
And most important
Love
We will find a way to form stitches
The wound will close
Yet there will be scar
That remains
 
We will all deal with what has been taken
But deep down
We all also realize
We can never replace
All that has been lost
 
Yes
Today was one of those days
For which there are truly
No words
 
Only tears
Prayers
And finally hope
 
Hope for a better
Tomorrow
