As It Is In Heaven

She didn't wake up that Christmas morning
She didn't run down the hall
Like so many kids
The next time she would do that
Would be forever
Like so many kids
Hundreds this year
They weren't naughty
They were nice
They won't be waking up this Christmas morning
I feel it every time
That sudden end
To a story just begun
The one that doesn't get
A happily ever after
 It's like the poet said,
There's one more kid
that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love,
never get to be cool

We can ask why
We can still cry
And hold those close
Who saw the sun come up
This Christmas morning
- for Claire Davis and hundreds more
Peace on Earth
