A poem in memory of those killed in Orlando - I wanted to say something but I couldn't work out how to say it, so I wrote a poem instead.


1. Vigil

Linking hands as the rain fell,

A squeeze, a smile, a tear.

A plane passes overhead,
As the crowd falls to silence.

Candles lit, flicker in the dark,
As those red petals flutter in the breeze.

Together, a loss becomes love,
A warmth for us all.

Together, grief becomes hope,
Flames as one burn bright.

Together, fear becomes strength,
Their deaths ignite the fire.

As one, our hearts moved in the silence,
And, hand in hand, we knew.

In memory of all 49 killed in Orlando
