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 ~~~~

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.
