Prayers for them

 

God I call to you and ask for strength 

Not for me 

but for the families 

for the students 

for the friends

for the teachers

for the town. 

 

Tragedy has struck an innocent soul 

A soul taken so soon 

A soul taken too fast 

A soul that cannot be forgotten 

A soul missed by many

A soul put to rest November 18, 2015  

 

Tragedy has struck an innocent soul 

A soul that lives 

A soul that knows what happened 

A soul that feels pain 

A soul that has to watch 

A soul that has to experience

A soul that is terrified.  

 

God I call for strength 

Not for me 

but for the one who lived 

for the family whose son passed  

for the siblings who lost a brother 

for the siblings that are helping their brother heal

for the kids who lost a friend 

for the school a student has passed 

for a town that lost a soul 

 

God I call for strength 

Not for me

but for the guy who lived, who lost his best friend

for the pain he has felt 

for the pain he continually feels. 

 

God I call to you
