NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN -- 9/11

THE SKYS DID NOT HAVE TO OPEN
OUR TEARS FELL LIKE RAIN
FOR ALL NEW YORKERS
WE ARE STILL IN PAIN

ON THE ILL-FATED DAY IN SEPTEMBER
WHEN THE TOWERS FELL
IT WAS AS IF THE DEVIL
OPENED THE GATES OF HELL

THE TOWERS WERE TUMBLING
YET THEY ANSWERED THE CALL
POLICEMEN AND FIREMEN
HEROES ONE AND ALL

THE SCENE WAS A DISASTER
THEIR COMMANDERS SPOKE
THEY RUSHED IN WILLINGLY
THROUGH THE FIRE AND SMOKE

WITHOUT ANY THOUGHT
OF BEING IN HARM’S WAY
THEY RUSHED IN TO SAVE
AND LOST THEIR LIVES THAT DAY

TRYING TO SAVE FOLKS
LIKE YOU AND ME
THEY LISTENED TO THE CALL
AND MET THEIR DESTINY

THERE IS A SPECIAL PLACE
FOR THESE MEN STRONG AND BRAVE
IT DID NOT END
WITH DIRT ON THEIR GRAVES

THEY ROSE WITH THE ANGELS
FILLED WITH GRACE
AND THEN IN A MOMENT
THEY SAW SWEET JESUS’ FACE

WE WILL NEVER FORGET
THOSE IN HEAVEN
AND PROMISE
TO ALWAYS REMEMBER 9/11

    WOW!! That’s amazing! Well done!
    Even though I’m not American, I vividly remember my husband waking me and telling me what was happening. I simply couldn’t believe it and sat in horror as this most indescribably evil horrors unfolded in front of our eyes.
    WHile I wasn’t there & am not American, I had been there many years before on the 75th floor when fitout was happening ofr one of the first offices to occupy a small corner of that place. And for three years I lived not far south, in the Virginian suburbs of Washington.

    But all over the world people felt it, though none so dearly as yourselves, and those in the midst of the suffering and despair.

    God bless you for your poignant and wonderful poem in memorium of those fallen souls on that day.

    Jan……xxxxxOOOOOOxxxxxx

    Well done Sally. A beautiful tribute. I too am not American, but i lost a good friend that day; she was in the plane that hit the pentagon on her way home from seeing her family. Many lives were touched that day and are still being touched in some way.
    We will never forget.
