    "Awakened At Midnight"
    by Angela Rabatin

    What a shock it came to be
    When the guards came to awaken me.
    At first I was annoyed,
    But that soon changed to fright.
    How odd it was to be
    Awakened at midnight.

    I'd led a carefree life
    At least until now;
    Now my life has been taken over
    It's so hard to explain how.
    But deep inside I somehow knew
    My pain would soon be over now.

    We were led into a cellar
    Where we were told to stay,
    But then without warning
    Some men came to take us away.
    Away to a place that we'd never been
    A place I only knew as Heaven.

    Papa never lied to my family or I,
    That sooner or later
    We were going to die.
    And so it was on July 17
    Then we died there together
    My family and I.

    I would like to humbly thank Angela Rabatin for sending me this poem she wrote, and to Raymon David for helping me post this on my web site. Boise, Idaho U.S.A.

    Holy Royal Child-Martyr Alexis,

    Pray Unto God For Us!

    Glory Be To God For All Things!
