Gently she cries

As the snow falls

Upon her shoulders,

Cloaking her in white.

Lightly he steps,

A hand resting

Softly upon her neck

As he murmurs

Whispers of faith.

Turning into

The haven he creates,

She laments

The scene before her,

The stained battle ground

A curse for any child

Where the fighting

Had newly ended:

A rebellion

Against a world of peace.

And she sings softly

Shuffling away quietly

From the lonely girl,


Nothing is sacred

Where the innocent

Die for the guilty.

I liked this as well. The last three lines were the best. I havn't written any poetry in ages. I shall proceed to do that ... sometime.
