And then…

6 Sep


[In memory of 9/11, loss, and service]

Heart-piercing shrieks as speechless horror unfolds

Panic thundering through the routines of the day

Blackness and grayness cuts through the blueness of sky

I wonder if the birds of the air also paused in flight to gasp


Darkness did not stop the light, it cannot… unless let

Hearts remembered the oaths vowed before  God and Man

Living Images of the One who is Great Light burst forward

Loving, comforting, sharing, mending, searching, providing


Did you hear? Do you know? What is written? What He wills

That He will wipe the teary eye, death certainly conquered

Sorrow will flee, crying shall cease, pain no more, nevermore

Those times of old shall give way to the Goodness of a new day

The promise is firm; the Christ of the Universe gives His Word
