Our Lady of Fatima Burnt to the Ground

A piece of history

gone in a wink of an eye

So many memories

down to a pile of burning embers

A wedding of your friend,  your cousin

your parents, your neighbour

A wake of your friend, your cousin,

your parents, your neighbour

How sad the heart is to

know the energy of that building is gone

All the special times- Holy Communion,

celebrations, prayers but a memory in time

The funeral home full of laughter and tears

to ease mournful parishioners is  gone

The House of God in that tiny community

is flattened by a fire in the night air

Sadness settles all around the hearts

that once filled the space with reverence and prayer
