OKLAHOMA (a city in terror)
There have been so many life's taken, and how
do we explain the terror?
Our children are afraid to sleep at night,
and a mother has lost her child
How do we tell her?
Oklahoma City is our nations homeland
And is filled with love of man kind.
But this great city will never be able
to put their losses behind.
And when we pray for our own, let's pray
for Oklahoma to heal.
For it's hard to imagine their pain
But that pain is very real.
We all wish we could lighten the load for you
and on every rescuers heart.
And letting them know that we appreciate them
I guess is a good start.
Those who rescued them, are the ones who in time
will release a parents imprisoned heart.
No matter how hard it may be on them,
They will always do their part.
My condolences to those who have suffered great loss
And to those who survived
You are in our prayer's, although we can't really
know your pain, we want you to know that folks
around the world do care.
Just keep in mind that there will be justice
one way or another.
But for now you need to be strong for the children.
And be there for each other.
This is for those in Oklahoma City who have had
to weather the loss of humanity.The loss of loved ones! ! !
