I went to a party today

The best one I’ve ever seen

An event beyond all other

Decorated in red, blue, white, and green


Colors of the rainbow

The party hats were crowns of gold

We sipped fresh river water from

Crystal glasses that glow


The hosts wore beautiful wings

And sang shiny shimmery songs

In harmony and clarity

Like silk each one sings


A King opened His sparkly palace doors

He had gems on every plate

Where I ate cake of honey

And walked on transparent glass floors.


No bells ever tinkled like crystal

Like the ones in this castle of gold

No desserts tasted as much like clouds

To my friends and me who are so little.


We guests numbered twenty-seven

We came from a scary place

But now we laugh and hurt no more

In this Welcome Home party in heaven

In memory of the students and teachers killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School

I want to hear from you!
