WE WILL REMEMBER THEM:
Today is a day of sad reflection,
When the world mourned the loss of many
In the September sun.
People going about their daily tasks,
Innocent of what lay in store.
The hearts of the world went out to America,
And will remember forever more.
Whilst I was in New York City,
Some years ago.
I visited "Ground Force" which was being reconstructed,
What a humbling experience it was so.
I stood there and said a silent prayer,
For the many lives that were lost.
Also for the families of them,
Who suffered at such cost.
This date but three years previously,
I too lost a beloved one.
Today I will light a candle and pray,
Amid the September sun.
