The sun is shining today,
It shines every day for me.
For my world is not of yours,
Admiring you, I stay.
Eyes and faith laid inside you,
To see stolen justice.
The slaughter was too much for men,
To silently obey.
A short life cut 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 this way to follow Him,
All it cost was love.
In Memory of Sophie Scholl. Christian Martyr and Revolutionary.
