In Remembrance

September 11, 2014

  
Winged coffins smashing to the ground
Buildings crumbling with horrific sound
Sacrifices made of body, blood, and bone
Stolen by crushing weight of steel and stone
On this day the towers fell
A surge of revenge did up swell
The loss of so many a life
Sundering of husband from wife
Of parents torn apart from child
Screams of pain deep and wild
All those Emergency Providers true
Died in service for me and you
Our nation’s flags at half mast
Funeral corteges marching past
Eleven years have now passed
Freshness of wounds has elapsed
But sorrow does still exist
Clenched tight like a fist
I pray for that glorious day of peace
When all violence shall finally cease.

Emily

For all those touched by 9/11/01.
