REMEMBERING 9-11-01

We pause to bring to memory,
The day tears fell like rain;
The most eloquent of writers,
Could not define this pain.

We watched our shattered innocence,
Like dust upon the wind;
Scattered in the inferno,
To never return again.

Heads were bowed in prayer that day,
Faith was tested and tried;
And in the midst of sorrow,
Countless tears were cried.



Sorrow wrapped around us,
Like a bitter winter wind;
Faces flashed before us...
Those who would never come home again.

We heard the solemn roll call,
Of thousands who left us that day;
We heard of brave and selfless acts,
And the stories behind those names.

A nation was brought to its knees that day,
In a moment frozen in time;
A grief and pain we will never forget...
And words will never define.
