Flowers and Candles

Copyright 2015 by Kennan Zishka

A father took his son
To the display on the streetSo many came to weep

The son told his father
“Now we have to leave this place
From bad men with guns and bombs”
With such fear in his face

The father said to his son
There are bad men ever where
This is our home, where we live
The joy of love we share

Then the boy asked
“Who will protect us
Who will keep us safe”

The flowers and candles
So many saddened faces

Will protect us
The flowers and candles
Will keep us safe

Flowers to treasure the day light
Candles to shine through the night

The flowers and candles
Will protect us
The flowers and candles
Will keep us safe

Then the boy looked
All around and said
“Now I feel safe here”

The flowers and candles
Will protect us
The flowers and candles
Will keep us safe
