God looked out
Upon the whole world
He saw his fair flowers
And his deep oceans swirl
But amid all the peace
The Lord saw unsettling sights
The innocent were dying
As unnoticed as mice
A silent massacre of children
Is taking place day by day
Mothers killing their own babies
The world should not be this way
Our great God started to tremble
Fresh tears came to his eyes
"Why are my people like this?"
He asked, "Why do so many die?"
God begs, "Each life is so precious."
"It doesn't matter if big or small."
"Can't you see all the harm that you've caused?"
"Equally, I have created you all."
Our Lord tipped his head
He let his tears rain from the sky
"For the children," he says, "I weep."
"For the evils of mankind I cry.
As the last tears slipped down
The heavens opened, revealing a sign
A brilliant rainbow descended to earth
"This," God said," holds all the children of mine"
"Some souls rest here, others spangle the night sky,"
"But always, in my heart, they will eternally lie."
For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.--"Romeo and Juliet"
