Remember Me

Remember Me

A Poem by Dara

Re posting this poem in memory of the victims, the first responders, and their families whose lives were destroyed by the tragic events of 9-11-01.


When you see the trees

remember me

as they shade you there

with their broad green leaves.


When you feel the rain

let it cool your skin

and think of me

as I was back then.


When you see the stars

in the bright night sky

make a wish

as you close your eyes.


A wish to keep

what we had found,

a love that was real

and so profound.

A gentle if sadly poignant tribute to tragedy. Seems something we have to get used to with the combination of natural and man made disasters of recent years. So sad.
