A PRAYER FOR THOSE LEFT BEHIND


IT IS ALMOST MIDNITE

9/11 Memorial

AND MY HEAD IS BENT

AS I REMEMBER THE DAY

WHERE THOSE PLANES WENT..

A DAY OF WORK

WAS TO BE THE WAY

NO ONE EXPECTED

WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY..

A PARENT, A FRIEND, AND A CHILD

WERE TAKEN FROM SOMEONE WHO CARED

THE CRIES AND THE GASPS OF THE NEWS

AS THE WORDS LAID OUR HEARTS TO BE BARED..

DEATH BY THOUGHT AND PLANNED MURDER

SHAKES OUR MINDS, STIRS OUR MODE OF CONTENT

IT OPENS OUR EYES TO MAKE US REALIZE

THAT DAYS SHOULD NOT WASTEFULLY BE SPENT..

I AM TAKING THIS MOMENT WHILE ALL IS SO STILL

TO PAY MY RESPECT FOR ALL WHO HAVE GONE BY

MY HEART IS STILL WITH YOU, ALTHOUGH TIME HAS PASSED

THERE WAS NO NEED FOR THIS, AND I STILL WONDER WHY….

GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU, WHO LINGER BEHIND

WHO TAKE ONE STEP AT A TIME EVERY DAY

THAT GOD HAS SHOWED MERCY AND KEPT FAITH ALIVE

MY HEART AND MY PRAYERS ARE BEING SENT YOUR WAY….

AMEN
