Rest in peace, little flowers
(A tribute to the innocent children killed in the horrifying Peshawar school attack)

Today the world is poorer,
By the loss,
Of your laughter;

Today the world is darker,
By the loss of the light,
Of your gleaming eyes;

Today the world is colder,
By the loss of the warmth,
Of your trusting heart;

Today the world is more dismal,
By the loss of the sounds,
Of tiny feet running around,
By the loss of the hopes, the dreams,
The innocence,
The fragrance.

Rest in peace, little flowers.
