ad aspra per aspera(to the stars with difficulties)

10 years ago today
Your loved ones passed away
In a building struck by an airplane
Sadness filled the nation
Hearts were broken
The United States was shocked
It’s been 10 years
Healing has taken place
But the pain never stops
No one can fill their place
Life may go on
God is always with you
10 years
But no time has gone by
The events of that day
Still burnt into the back of your mind
Funerals never cease to haunt your dreams
An unpleasant memory
Lives taken
Much too soon
10 years
Sorrow and gloom
Still haunts our moments
Our dreams
Our lives
Our every waking step
We cannot forget
We try to prevent it happening again
Terroristic attacks
But even if another one happens
Will we forget
Ten years ago.

This is about 9/11/11. I wrote it because it was the only way I could put my thoughts about that day to paper.
