A Nation of Tears (09/11/2001)

Lost souls reaching heaven.
Conversations cut off without closure.
Children begging for their parents to come home.
Death’s divorce leaves loved ones in disbelieve.

Families chard by the fire of terrorist.
Fits of crying take hold without warning.
A nation weeps for thousands of lives gone in a moment.
I will see rain now as God's tears.

A trail of pain rolling down my cheek and touching my lips.
I taste the salt of a thousand wounds and I remember today.
We must not forget the power of jealous hatred
And the gift of freedom we must now defend.
