We Have Wept

April sixth, Two Thousand and Eighteen

A day of tragedy, and many lost dreams

article continues below

Young men setting out to their play off game

For a glimmer of winning and a moment of fame.

The “Humboldt Broncos, “Go yellow and green”

Hard working and strong, dedicated and keen

Until this fateful day of the terrible bus crash

Their times before them, in only a flash.

Many lost their lives, and their injuries great

Emotions of horror, scenes too devastating to face.

The disaster was grande, first responders at hand

Emergency rooms at code orange, and command centres to man

Praise going to all for their endless care

The towns came together in unimaginable flare.

A vigil was held to comfort and console

Psalm 23rd was a strong message to consider and hold

Dignitaries attended, sending messages of good will

Go Fund Me in progress to help the families pay bills.

Hockey sticks and candles placed on porches and front doors

Global messages of sympathy, and support of community pours

Wearing ribbons of green, and holding minutes of silence

The volunteers, and messages, it is love at its finest!

All who were affected on this horrific day

Need the hugs and prayers to keep coming their way

Light a candle, hold a hand, just listen to “whom”

We are all mourning, We are all consumed!

The mental wounds will take some time

Cherish the good! Hold  onto those smiles

The Saskatchewan community is #Humboldt Strong

With the outpouring of love, stand together,

No matter how long!

No matter how long, lets blanket their pain

These heroes on the bus, already had fame

No matter how long, a moment of silence to pursue,

Humboldt Broncos... We Love You
