A poem for Amanda Todd

In the darkness they bring To the light you must go A child of God, an angel to all

In the darkness they bring

To the light you must go

A child of God, an angel to all

Fear not of the unknown

Because you know now your worth

Protect us and guide us

Free from the pain you endured

Free from the shackles of others sins

Learn of love and compassion

From the plain you now walk

You’re spirit set free to love

To know all that is knowing

To learn from a life so short

Your beauty is everlasting

Know the lives you’ve touched

And the memories of those who love you

Of flesh you discard

And fly amongst the stars

Guide those left behind

To see and touch and feel

All the things elusive

Be free angel, embrace the light

Never forgotten, never out of sight
