Lost But Not Forgotten

Description


LOST BUT NOT FORGOTTEN


They lost their life on that fateful day
April 16th together we pray.
No motive, no means, to commit such a crime.
What began a Monday morning,
lost like a drop of a dime.

A community, our school,
Virginia Tech that is.
What turned into a tragedy.
once known as a serene state of bliss.

It was a snowy, cold, spring morning
when their world came to a halt.
A day of great remembrance
full of pain, grief, and fault.

No one can possibly
express this magnitude of distress.
To hold their hand in silence
and mourn those we miss.

Where do we go from here?
Is there any place to turn?
To change the hands of time
And take away their fear.

Through the darkness of night
until the break of a new day.
Please remember our HOKIES
This, I ask you to pray.
