a field of sunflowers

A field of sunflowers,
The news commentator repeats.
Lies the horrors of MH17,

Grandpa used to joke,
If you lie on a field of beautiful flowers,
You will die in peace.

The victims of MH17,
died I hope on impact,
They didn't suffer pain.

But it is the people they left behind,
The mums and the dads, the children,
The husbands and the wives.

Their bereavement, their pain,
Who will wipe their tears away?
Who will comfort the hole in their heart.

Will the leaders be swayed?
To lay down their weapons.
And understand war is morally wrong.
