Many Hearts Were Broken

I always post this today. I wrote this not long after 9/11 while trying to understand it all:

Many Hearts Were Broken

Many hearts were broken,
Many tears were shed,
No words can be spoken,
To bring back our dead.

Immediate family,
spouse, lover or friend,
acquaintance or stranger,
We all lost in the end.

Let us never forget them,
Their laughter, their love,
They never expected
The terror from above.

The were living their lives,
performing their tasks,
Why them, why now,
we all have to ask.

There are no answers
this riddle can't be solved
When madmen have power
and terrorism is involved.

We must never give up,
We can't let them win
We will fight to the death,
This can't happen again.

War causes pain,
and so much sorrow,
We must fight this war
for a better tomorrow.

Whatever may happen,
Whatever may come
We must stand together
We must act as one.

Our hearts may be heavy
Death knocks at our door,
We do everything possible
to get up from the floor.

We dust off our boots
and strike up the band
We will survive
if United We Stand.
