Poems and prayers for Madeleine

Postby MsMarbles » Tue Nov 27, 2007 6:27 pm

There was a Madeleine poems and prayers section on the old forum. I can't find one here, so hope it's ok to start one? I wrote a quick poem/prayer and posted it up there, so thought I would do the same here. Someone else started the other thread and wrote a beautiful poem, I just can't remember who it was now?


Sweet Madeleine

If you exist on some distance plain
No more feel the sun upon your face
No more childhood moments, no life ahead
Just like dear sweet baby Grace

Should you then know peace sweet ones
Play sandcastles on a distant beach
And feel the love and warmth of God
Where no more harm you both can reach

I pray in your heaven that there's places
Where you be cherished, run and play
something that you were both denied
When the Lord fetched you home that day

Very nice, pity her parents didn't think about any of that.
It was our holiday too

I wrote this soon after Madeleine went missing, filed it, thinking I would write a last stanza when she was found ... I'm sad I haven't been able to do that yet.

Waiting, Hoping  Pain

Watched by white hot sun
policemen, tight-lipped with dogs
search for a lost child;
a small paradise in shock.
Parents plead for her return.

World's media wait;
desperate relatives, friends
hunting without clues,
frustrated by lack of news.
Microlites search from above.

The famous line up
to deliver their strong pleas.
Someone must know where she is.
At home and abroad they pray -
for a miracle.

CCTVs checked;
posters pinned all about.
There's a sense of urgency;
a sense of time running out
as rumours abound.

'Driven into Spain',
'Held close by,' 'Snatched to order',
someone must have seen.
So many millions offered -
still not enough for the truth?

Oh why, why did they leave her?
'They've taken her!'
Who, Kate? Who 'took' your daughter?

Will we ever know the truth of that night

In a dark room shutters down from the light

We heard that you screamed a night before that

Is it a myth,is it true,is it fact

So many things we are not sure any more

Did your parents really 'not lock that door

Three little babes left all alone

Never to know ,only two would go home

The nights we all post hoping to find

A way to be clear and sure in our mind

Yet each day more sadness it brings

Because madeleine beth 'you are missing so many things

It's been almost a year,you should be turning just five

But deep in my heart,i know you are no longer alive

Springs in the air ,everything is so new

The grass smells so fresh,from the morning dew

Your eyes they will haunt me the rest of my days

For you there will be no more birthday mays

I wish you could tell the truth of that night

were you alone,when god turned out the light

For Madeleine Beth McCann

Your a special little spirit, the all great master said. As he gently caressed the hair of the little spirit's head. You need to go to earth to spend some time you know. A place I send most spirits to be tested, to learn, to grow.

The little spirit in sadness, slowly bowed her little head and from her eye a tear did steal and down his cheek it shed.
Dont you fret now little one, I wont let you stay too long. I'll bring you back to help me here, you'll hardly know you've gone.

I need to test the people who will have you in their care to see if they appreciate how precious you are there.

Your my choicest little spirit. your the apple of my eye, and he wiped the tear and gently kissed his little spirit good-bye.

When he saw how you were treated, his special little one, he sent down all his angels just to bring you safely home.
I'm on the payroll........WHAT...you didn't know!!!!!!

posted this in main forum as didn't know we had a poetry one

'For Madeleine' by tabs

If we met would you know how we all feel?
Would you know how many think of you still?
Would you know this special place to which we all came?
Would you realise how many now know your name

Would you know how we hope you are at peace and feel love,
As you dance with the angels in the blue sky above,
Would you hear our thoughts, probing over old and new
Fighting for truth, for justice, for you

Precious child so alone so afraid and confused
Will we ever discover what became of you?
Alive in our hearts you always will stay
We will search for the truth, every hour, every day

So don't feel alone, don't feel sad
Look down upon us, in your heart feel glad
We are your voice now, so loud and so true
We will never give up on justice for you

Our promise to you we will never forget
This beautiful baby that we never met
But one day soon all the stars will align
And write across the sky 'All for you Madeleine'
a mind is like a parachute it only works when it is open

We stand.
Somewhere in the great unknown there came a tiny cry crying out for justice a voice that would'nt die.
Then suddenly that voice was heard from many a different land and so they came together prepared to make a stand.

People from all walks of life together with one will ,in answer to that tiny cry a cry that would not still.
So here we stand united in answer to that cry ,together seeking justice for a voice that would'nt die.
For Madeleine.

Where are You Sweet Angel...

Where are you sweet Angel?
as the world says a prayer for you
Where are you sweet Angel?
Your family don't know what to do

Where are you sweet Angel?
who has touched the hearts of all
Where are you sweet Angel?
little darling oh so small

Where are you sweet Angel?
are they taking good care of you dear?
Where are you sweet Angel?
who has filled our hearts with fear

Where are you sweet Angel?
do you still have your smile on your face?
Where are you sweet Angel?
We pray to our Dear Lords grace

To bring you back home safely
to the arms of your Mummy and Daddy
Where are you sweet Angel?
Sweet dear little Angel Maddy
