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.
