How we wish we could reach out
And hug you close to us today
And let you know there is real love
Behind the words we say.
We see your photos on TV
And our hearts are breaking too
For our world is so very small
And we are friends and family to you.
The losses that you have suffered
Cause our eyes to fill with tears
And we know that the return to normal
May take a lot of years.
But know that we won't forget
And will help in every way we know to do
Your land's healing, restoring and renewing
And each day we pray for you.
