The Soul Is Still Here

Our Lady of Fatima Statue at Conyers, GA, USA

English: Nativity scene


The tv reporter said

“The soul is gone out of

this place today!”

But I witnessed happy

people who enjoyed their

Christmas church service

in a community hall

And the same spirit

still existed in the smiles

and camaraderie all around

The grandchildren were there

held close in arms that love

and eyes that smile upon them

The singers and musicians

gave it their all in hymns that

have been passed down for centuries

The parishioners and priest were

jovial and energetic after

such a trying day the day before

How can anyone say because a

building burns to the ground

that the soul had gone?
