Heartbroken

Photo Friday is happening, as usual. I don't often write poetry; today I was moved to write this, in memory of yesterday's attack at Westminster and Parliament House.

Today I weep.
I weep for the injured
I weep for the dead.
I weep for those left behind.

I weep for those who only know hate
Even when love tries to save them.

Today I hope this is the last time I weep
And I weep that I am wrong.
