>Dear Parents, Friends and Loved Ones,
>Of these precious youth you've lost,
>I see your broken spirits,
>I know the terrible cost.
>Though evil reigned at Columbine,
>And horror filled the air,
>I wanted all of you to know,
>I left Heaven and came there.
>I summoned Heaven's Angels,
>Long before the call came in,
>To share the dreadful warning,
>Of what would soon begin.
>The angels' wings were folded,
>They knew what was to come,
>When I said, "I'll lead this mission."
>They followed one by one.
>"I will go and get these babies,
>And bring them home with me,
>Where they'll live in Heaven's Schoolhouse,
>Where it's safe and terror free."
>Yes, I've prepared a Special Schoolhouse,
>It stands out from all the rest,
>The Welcome Mat reads, "Columbine,"
>It's reserved for Heaven's best.
>I was hovering all around them,
>In the Library and the Hall,
>When the evil forces entered,
>Your children heard me call.
>I wrapped my arms around them,
>Pulled them close unto my breast,
>"I've come to take you with me,
>We must go and leave the rest."
>"Your friends will long remember,
>All the cool times that we shared,
>And the Angels will remind them,
>How very much you cared."
>Yes, I took those precious children,
>In the twinkling of an eye,
>We were on our way to Heaven,
>To their Schoolhouse in the sky.
>I know your hearts are broken,
>I know the pain you bear,
>My heart is also broken,
>By the evil everywhere.
>Please help me fight this battle,
>To keep our children safe,
>Through prayers and love and sharing,
>And holding to the Faith,
>That Peace will surely reign one day,
>In schools throughout the lands,
>For all our future hopes and dreams,
>Rest in our students' hands.
>I'll give you peace to fill your heart,
>Send sun to break the night,
>Provide the strength to move beyond,
>The wrongs and do what's right.
>You ask how I can know your pain,
>>From the loss of your dear one,
>It's because it seems like yesterday,
>When I, too gave up a Son.
