LET US NOT FORGET

It was a September day
All the world was silent
The birds stopped singing
The quiet before the violence

The sky seemed strange
Had never looked that way before
It was a slow process
Before the colors began to pour

The sun fanned out
From the sky blue streaked down
Blue faded into green
Red bled into brown

Crashing went the planes
The buildings toppled to the ground
Fire and death
Were all around

Smoldering ashes
Debris was left
Families missing loved ones
So many bereft

Police and Firemen
Lost their lives
Trying to get victims
Out of the buildings alive

Heroes one and all
Their souls went to Heaven
LET US NOT FORGET
What happened on 9/11

LET US NOT FORGET
