Twin beams of light shine heavenward,
Illuminate the sky;
Shining beacons of hope and faith,
To remember those who died.

Lights to shine upon a path,
That lead to a better place;
A flame held high, for those gone on,
Glimmers 'cross time and space.

The day will come, when the lights are dimmed,
But not in the heart of man;
For they will shine as long as we
Remember and understand...

... that evil lives among us,
But good will conquer all;
And freedom rings for everyone,
For those both great and small.

Beacons shine and fill the sky,
In memory of those taken that day...
But a life remembered in your heart,
Can never be taken away.

Allison Chambers Coxsey, 2002
