#2 Cadae


Oh, may there
bright angels to
you far and may they
sing lullabies in your own tongue. May
you not

fierce dark face
the man who led you to this fearful
dark place.

Oh, let there
a mother, who
smother you with mother-kisses, 'til
you wake.

The body of 7-year-old Hser Nay Moo was found last night in the bathroom of a South Salt Lake basement apartment in the complex where she lived. Hundreds of volunteers searched for almost two days before she was found. One of the searchers said, "I'm scared. I'm hoping for the best, but every time I open a Dumpster lid...God forbid."

We are all mourning for this tiny girl who wore her Sunday best, a pink dress, pink shoes, and a pink jacket to her tragic death. Someone has tied a pink sign with pink ribbons to a tree outside the apartments. It says: You are never so Lost that Angels can't find you. Police have arrested a young man for her murder.

God bless Hser Nay and her family.

I found an article that tells how to donate to a trust fund for the family. I found it through a local Salt Lake City TV article online.I then contacted Zion's Bank in Salt Lake City and got the info needed to send to the trust fund. My family will be sending a donation.

Anyone interested in donating to the trust fund set up for this girl’s family can do so by going directly to Zion’s Bank and mentioning ref. Hser Nay Moo. To mail a cheque or money order:

Zion’s Bank
701 East 400 South
Salt Lake City, UT 84102

write "deposit only" on cheque and include the following note:

*ref. Hser Nay Moo - donation*

Oh I cannot bear this, that someone could take a child and kill them, it makes me so angry. The poem is beautiful, even more so when your read the prose.

Oh my God. And I never say oh my God. But God help her family. That poor child. What a wonderful, beautiful idea to write a poem for her.

How tragic. Your poem is a sweet prayer of hope for the precious child, and for all children

I thought your poem was moving but after reading the tragic baby behind it my heart ached. Bless you Hser!

I'm very impressed with your dad and I think he would have liked your poem. XXOO
