Little Angel (For Aylan Kurdi) - Poem by Collette Anderson Williams

Little angel, little angel,
swept by the shores of the sea.
Little angel, little angel,
oh, the cost of mankind, you were made to pay!

Little angel, little angel,
what were they thinking!
Little angel, little angel,
you were only three.

Little angel, little angel,
oh, the quest for peace!
Little angel, little angel,
will there ever be?

Little angel, little angel,
the land is pregnant with the fury of blood.
Little angel, little angel,
and your life consumed by the flood.

Little angel, little angel,
you now sleep.
Little angel, little angel,
but now, we are left to weep.
