 In Silence Theirs ( 9/11 )
In Silence Theirs

We came to pay homage to them
Another year to comprehend
How mankind will make their peace
In sacrifice some thought of least

It was a clear Blue sky that morn
As steel became a place to mourn
The dead among the living that day
The souls amongst the crowds that prayed

An act so cruel planned by crazed fools
Thinking reward as flesh foot stools
Carried out their rise to fame
More an act of cowardly shame

My brother walked upon wasteland
Helping, hoping to find one more man
With breath of life, for families sake
For child hoping, to mothers theirs wake

The price was to high too high the cost
The loss now became and stayed with remorse
For on this day mankind would see
How evil did walk and today still decrees

There was no Godly act in this
More like the kiss as Judas kissed
Betraying CHRIST and fellow man
Destroying life with lives now theirs damned

My brother was spared for he would arrive
Too late on the scene but heard desperate cries
Of many there, clinging to life
With loss of humanity, husband and wife

They were daughters and sons, one's favorite niece
Uncles and aunts, grandparents at peace
Nephews and cousins, grandchildren them too
The change of the world that some only knew

In loss not forsaken they walk on this day
With prayers from Heaven today they now say
Weep not for the dead among those still living
Keep mankind in prayer and work on forgiving

For time is at hand to do GOD such favor
As GOD keeps what's good and life now is savored
In Kingdom unlike you'll find on this Earth
On streets paved of Gold with promised rebirth

My tribute to both the loss of life and to the many whose lives
were changed on 9/11

May GOD keep you as He keeps those you lost
