Today someone died in my family
Yesterday the death in your family
Are we square now?
The vigil in the remembrance
Of three beautiful bright lights
Reminds me how hatred swallowed them up
In this darkness
I see the shadows
Of men holding guns and revolvers
Moving around in our backyards
Who will attack next?
Innocent victims could be you or me
Before such a day dawns on us
My friend, let me hold you close
And assure you of my love
