The love we gave
Returned to us
In butterfly kisses
And smiles

The love we gave
Returned to us
So innocent
The laughter of a child

These days the love
Remains in us
Though loss has filled
December

Forever days
The love remains
We loved
So we remember

  1. Thanks, Greg. This was so poignant and thoughtfully done. A helpful way to work through the grief over that tragic event.

    • Thanks Susan, for your kind comments. I generally need a few days to get past the initial shock before I can truly put into words what I’m thinking. I hope, in some small way, this helps us all…

  2. Thank you Greg. This is wonderful and an honor for the victims. It´s incomprehensibly that this was happen.
    I don´t live in the US but I´m so sad about it.
