Ten Years

It’s gray and gloomy
This September day.
It rains and it rains
In my heart today.
And I’ve lit candles
In every room.
Cheerful little lights
To fight the gloom.
But they can’t help
Fight back the tears.
They just keep coming.
It’s been ten years.

  1. Remembering is hard. Any anger or fear or frustration I might have felt is long gone. After ten years, all I feel is sadness.

  2. very nice…a fine touch in your verse…the candles to push back the shadow and the hope they represent…it is hard though…i just watched a video that about crushed me just seeing some of the footage…

  3. A very touching tribute. I felt such sadness today hearing all of the names read of the victims of the WTC and yet there was a lot of strength expressed too. It was hard not to cry.

Words, words, glorious words! Give me all of your words!
