9/11/2008



remembering 9/11

you remember that sunny day
when something bad happened
tears literally poured
and we became clouds
standing beneath the blue sky
i remember victims and love ones were
running together
cos the ghosts flew up the heavens
and land upon God’s shoulders

our hearts were broken
you know,
we cried
as we all become one
not just the America
the whole world bringing pain
and sorrow in the join of hands

but we became stronger
much stronger as we are today
even if we are enemies
we still join hands now
in each day

cos it’s not the last day
of another event
we might lost a love one
or some of us might pass

this is the day
when we broke down
the hatred and start sharing
love way around the world
again and again

only to join the hands
as one
remembering the day
when we left
tears and stains
upon the ground where
we stroll the time of
9/11

WOW, thanks for reminding me of 911 I completely forgot about it since our local news has been flooded with talks and current happening with hurricane IKE. Never shall we forget those who lost their lives to terrorist.

Moving, kai. This, particularly:

"i remember victims and love ones were
running together
cos the ghosts flew up the heavens
and land upon God’s shoulders"


Thanks for the words.
