Innocence Lost: Parents Plead with Americans to Lay Down their Arms

Heaven’s Rocking Chair: A Poem by Ron Tranmer

Are there rocking chairs in Heaven
where little babies go?
Do the angels hold you closely
and rock you to and fro?

Do they talk silly baby talk
to get a smile or two,
and sing the sleepy lullabies
I used to sing to you?

My heart is aching for you,
my angel child so dear.
You brought such joy into my life,
the short time you were here.

I know you’re in a happy place,
and in God’s loving care.
I dream each night I’m rocking you
in Heaven’s rocking chair.

It’s my very favorite place.
I feel closer to you there.
We rock the hours away.
Me and your Teddy Bear.

The rocking chair is squeaking,
as rocking chairs will do.
I pretend the one I’m holding
isn’t Teddy Bear, but you.

I miss your little chubby cheeks.
They were so fun to kiss.
Cuddling you, and hearing you goo
are among the things I miss.

Precious memories of you linger
My child, I miss you so.
I hope one day my heart will heal.

It’s hard to let you go.

When in time God calls me home
to be with you up there;
With joy, I’ll hold you in my arms
instead of Teddy Bear.

  1. I suppose the ‘Truther’ movement will be quick to tell is that none of these utterly tragic gun related deaths have actually happened. These are CHILDREN killed because their family members kept LOADED guns in unsecured places where they could be reached by little hands.
    It’s the sheer tragedy that is the TRUTH at the base of these events.
    Children lost their lives! Their last moments on earth spent in terror and in pain.
    But it’s the families that will spend the rest of their lives grieving. And lamenting the fact that they had loaded guns in their homes in the first place.
    There is no numerical ammendment giving American citizens the ‘Right’ to bear children.
    They lost their children. The question is, will they keep their guns?
