Today is a day of reflection for me and many others throughout the world.
A moment spent, in our world of years,
Pain on faces, eyes full of tears,
Images hard to describe, of pain and grief,
Lives stolen, by the "Death-thief"
As leaves fall onto the ground,
new life grows and a love abounds.
No more the face of life's end, drawn near,
no more the pointing or the fear,
Just hearts that beat with love for those gone,
Oh for so long.
A life on earth so soon discarded,
Taken by the hardened, hearted.
all this takes place....... why....... it takes so long,
For all the loved ones to grow strong,
The sadness that comes just makes us hunger,
For love to grow out of the grief,
for the one i call.
11th September 2008.
Today i cry for all those lives taken.
