thoughts from my mind to yours

Yesterday, I saw you cry…

20 Comments

Yesterday, I saw you cry

from the comforts of the window

of my computer screen…


Yesterday, my heart broke

for there was nothing I could do

as I watched your tiny war torn faces…

Your bleeding aches,

so prominently captured 

on the 2 minute facebook message.


Yesterday, I sent a prayer for help,

to help you and other innocent children,

innocent people and innocent lives…

for though I can choose to skip this video

when it appears tomorrow…

you are tragically stuck,

in the most tragic of circumstances…


So today I write,

and I hope my words bring peace,

my words spread love,

and my words can be of some comfort…

And though it’s not enough,

I write and I pray,

for you.
