Where Were You…When (tribute poem to 9/11)

The twin towers

burned to the ground

covered in dust

can you still hear the sound

of a nation’s cries

as loved ones and countrymen

wipe their eyes

and ask why?

Twenty-eight hundred people

lost their lives at ground zero

and became heroes

in the name of freedom

We shall never forget the day

the twin towers burned to the ground

we will remember a country united

filled with the promise of a brighter tomorrow

Where were you…when

all the heroes died at Ground Zero?

now, we ask each other

where we were…when

the twin towers

burned to the ground

covered in dust

In God we trust

we will never have to ask

where were you when…

ever again.
