On September 11th

December 1, 2007
On September 11th we woke to a normal morning and got ready for the day.
We never expected the tragedy that was headed our way.
We got ready for school and work,
We didn’t want to be late.
Not knowing we’d never forget this horrifying date.
We started our routines and planned for a busy time.
Until we got the call through the telephone line.
We turned on the TV, just as we told
And watched as our hands started to get cold.
New York was full of smoke like a very foggy morning.
Because a plane had struck a building without a single warning.
We all watched in a silence as the second building was hit.
I could not believe my eyes one bit.
As we watched the 1st tower collapse and saw people jumping.
We had to look away for our hearts were surly pumping.
When the second tower collapsed Tears fell from my eyes,
I thought of all the people that lost their lives.
