In memory of Carlie Brucia, murdered in Floida, "Heaven awaits"


 

In quiet garden bright beyond,
 

amidst the grass so soft and sweet,
 

~~~~ a child lamb is sleeping ~~~~
 


 

O' cherished child, in veiled youth,
 

amidst the night of crossing come,
 

a slayer lurking in the breath,
 

using the sword of his smooth tongue,
 


 

Hence' her innocence without a stain,
 

he snatched her veil, the greatest shame,
 

fierce, cruel and filled of strife,
 

with his sword he sought her life,
 


 

The fate of thee, O' cherished child,
 

upon a road so cold and dark,
 

his secret told upon a screen,
 

a slayer of ruthless heart,
 


 

In  quiet garden bright beyond,

admidst the grass so soft and sweet,
 

~~~~ a child lamb is sleeping ~~~~

Valerie,

This is a beautiful heartfelt poem.
Sucha loss and so painful her
poor family...
So young it is horrible...

Beautiful Valerie! I wrote a poem and sent it to my congressman, urging everyone to write theirs. We've had enough of crinminals being on the street with such records and no rehabilitation.
