9/11 ~ And so WE Remember...

September 11, 2001

A decade plus two years have gone by
Since horror besieged that September 11th sky
A morning that yet echoes lament and loss real
Tears, heartache, shock, beyond all conceal
Time alone does not ease the grief and pain
For the inward scars of loss long long remain
Deep within, a loving wise, to hold, to embrace
Memory of our loved ones within heart we place

In dedication, in honor, and with everlasting love
Blessed BE the souls that dwell within heavens above.
