Ashes fall down; coating the battlefield.
Injuries were inflicted here; never to be healed.
Tears descend like rain; illustrating endless sorrow.
So many lost; some today, more tomorrow.
To be reunited; the path is rough.
Loved ones determined; memories aren’t enough.
Stopping at nothing; soon they will be happy again.
A single question lingers; how soon will it happen?
Joy and love; so foreign now.
To get through life; they keep asking how?
How were you lost; how did you die?
How can you watch; how did I not say goodbye?
He was a hero; his life was not spared.
She was an angel; it seemed like no one cared.
Why were they taken; why did others live?
When someone had nothing; they had all to give.
Who got to choose; why were their lives taken?
When we got the news; our worlds were shaken.
Doubts were everywhere; it couldn’t be true.
But a single promise; just one thing to do.
They’ll be remembered; of that, we’re sure.
Memorials and monuments; to be seen in the future.
Forever our angels; guiding us throughout our days.
Forever our heroes; protecting us always.
