As everyone may be aware
Today is the 11th of September.
A day in the calendar,
That the world will always remember,
The awful attack in New York
Twnety years ago,
Still brings tears to one's eyes,
As the years do go.
I visited "Ground Zero"
Whilst in New York City.
Have lost the photo I declare,
To me such a pity.
I felt very humbled,
That day at the "Ground Zero" site.
To share the sorrow of the folk,
In darkness and in light.
I also have a 9/11 of my own,
To you I will relate.
You see three years previously,
I lost my husband I can state.
Back in 1998 on 11th. September
He lost his battle for life.
So today I will remember him
With happiness .... not tears and strife.
I will recall the happy years,
That we spent together.
Coming out on top,
Through the occasional stormy weather.
I will be also thinking of you all,
As this day proceeds.
A day and date one cannot forget.
Wherever your life my lead.
