A Day In September

A Day In September

A Poem by Luissanto

A day that would never be forgotten ...

It was a day in September
The day God would cry
for all of His children
not just those who died

But for those left behind
those who would mourn
whose lives would be broken
whose hearts would be torn

It was a day full of sorrow
a day filled with pain
a day filled with tears
which flowed like the rain

Now the cries have gone silent
and the healing begun
but the scars left behind
will never be gone

So we honor those
who were taken away
being there for each other
each and every day

We will never forget
that day in september
which touched all our lives
and changed us forever

Yes, we were forever changed.
Yet, sadly, from black September's bitter ashes came only a fleeting unity.
Exceptional poem, L!

I like the way there is no finger pointing - instead the focus on sorrow an remembrance. I agree with what Chris said, the sincerity plays the big role here. It happened, we hurt, now life must be patched back together again. Very nice X
