September 14, 2001


who could have believed it scarce a week ago

that such a thing could even be considered

and now it has happened with thousands gone

leaving lives incomplete and empty homes

which short days ago held life and joy

ones mind can hardly wrap itself around this

terror so new poured out upon us

surely this is the blow of an evil hand

though distant with strength all too great

overwhelming lives once thought strong and sure

our frailty that of steel


dear God I want to cry


would to God the hands that did this deed

be forever stilled


Each New Day A Miracle
