NEVER, NEVER WILL YOU ESCAPE MY MIND


NEVER, NEVER WILL YOU ESCAPE MY MIND

 

I WAS YOUR DAUGHTER

OR WIFE, OR SISTER, YOU KNOW

I REMEMBER THE KISS

YOU PLANTED GENTLY

ON MY CHEEK

THAT EARLY MORNING

WHEN YOU WERE

READY TO EXIT THE DOOR

GOING TO WORK

LIKE ANY OTHER DAY

BUT THIS DAY

IT WAS DIFFERENT

A U-TURN IN LIFE

OUT OF YOUR HANDS

A DIFFERENT PLAN

TURNING MY WORLD

UPSIDE DOWN

THE LIGHT IT

WHISPERED LOW

THEN IT BECAME

DARK AS GOD REACHED

DOWN AND GENTLY

LIFTED YOU INTO HIS ARMS

THE DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET

THE DAY; THE DAY OF TRAGEDY

WHEN 9-11 STRUCK OUR LIVES

LEAVING A MASSACRE OF TEARS

WHICH SOMETIMES ESCAPE

MY EYES AND ESPECIALLY

TODAY AS I REMEMBER

NEVER, NEVER WILL YOU

ESCAPE MY MIND

DEAR GOD, PLEASE

GIVE HIM A HUG FOR ME

REMIND HIM I STILL

THINK OF HIM

EACH AND EVERY DAY.

WRITTEN BY,

TERRY SHEPHERD
