Note to Sophie

The sun is shining today,
It shines every day for me.
For my world is not of yours,
Admiring you, I stay.

You started out with just ideas,
Then learned there should be justice.
The slaughter was too much for men,
To silently obey.

It cut a short life out in seconds,
The blade dropping fast.
You offered yourself, without thought,
A sacrifice retold.

No greater love has any man,
To give up everything.
The last breadth, wisdom full,
For friends and others unknown.

I know no Sophie,
Before my time, a woman full of God.
Who showed the way to follow him,
All it cost was love.


Inspired by the sacrifice of her life Sophie Scholl, Christian and German WW2 Resistance
