In Their Behalf

Little lives, so sweet, and Innocent,
Swept off the Earth, in an Instant,
Taken, from their families,
And their friends,
Into Eternity, when,
A madman entered, saying,
"Come with me,"
But they did not;
He left,
But they remain,
In the hearts of many,
There to stay.

And, in their behalf,
Let us remember,
And not forget,
Their laughter, their love,
All they gave,
And might have given,
Had we seen, had we known,
What Heaven Understood:
That men, unlike God, must always strive,
"To do what is Good".
