Years have gone by.
Memories, raw as yesterday.
I cry to remember, I cry to forget.
Hope begins, where hate left off.
People caring so little,
made us smarter, stronger people.
This day brings tears, awakening old fears.
Many were taken and many still are, from disease
of smoke, dust and falling debris.
We fell to our knees on that fateful day,
we grieve, have learned, have remembered.
Horror still fresh on the lips of many.
The death, fear, pain inflicted can not be removed,
but something bigger was gained.
Love, respect and unity, we stand..
Hand in hand.
