Tribute to 911 Survivors
We wish to remember 911
You can see the pictures at this link, http://www.silentlambs.org/911.htm Take a moment to remember those that lived and died on 9-11-01. At Silentlambs we share the following tributes with those that wish to recall this moment in time. An Abuse Survivor wrote the following poem the day after 911 and we share it with you today six years after the lives of so many were forever changed. "As If You Were Mine" I never met you, yet now, you're familiar, I never shook your hand, yet you're my friend. I never kissed you, but you were my child....And I shed tears that never seem to end. I never held you close, yet you're my husband, you were not by bride, yet, you're my wife. I never felt your care, yet you're my Mother, The one who gave me love, and breath, and life. I never sought your strength, yet you're my Father, You're my brothers, uncles, sisters, cousins, aunts, We will keep on hoping, keep on searching, As long as any of you has a chance. I never sang you lullabies, yet you're my baby. You're the grandparent who wiped away my tears, I love you even though I never knew you, as if I'd known you a lifetime worth of years. I never saw your smile, until September, staring out from pictures held in shaking hands, Of those who utter prayers you may be living, beneath the wreckage that defiantly still stands. I never saw you fight, yet you're my hero, because you tried, and never did give in, Your courage saved so many who would have perished, because of you, all evil did not win. I never touched the towers, yet I mourn them, I never dreamed such sorrow, yet my heart breaks, for every single person who is missing, for every family that will never be the same. I've never imagined such hatred, yet we all saw it, ...Such noble things, used with such evil intent. Flying through the air, inside, such precious cargo, so many innocent lives, such senseless ends. The towers fell, and none of us could stop it, if we could have saved those lives, we would. Now we will cry, with all those who are grieving, giving comfort, love, and strength, as we all should. And we will learn your names, and see your faces, though you're gone, you're never left behind. We'll not forget the lives that you were living, and I will mourn you, as if you were mine. ~Lily Paige Original- Can’t Cry hard Enough http://www.firehouse.com/terrorist/images/cry.html Can’t Cry Hard enough http://youtube.com/watch?v=KonFRhqbj2I&mode=related&search= Tribute to 911 http://youtube.com/watch?v=dspNlsBqsUk&mode=related&search= Tribute to 911 http://youtube.com/watch?v=GFDWeFiQ2hU&mode=related&search= Enya Tribute http://youtube.com/watch?v=oJNqSsWBWxs&mode=related&search= Performed By: Victoria Williams Written By: David Williams & Marvin Etzioni From the Album: Swing the Statue p & c 1990 Rough Trade Records I'm going to live my life Like every day's my last Without a simple good-bye It all goes by so fast And now that you're gone I can't cry hard enough No I can't cry hard enough For you to hear me now I'm going to open my eyes And see for the first time I've let go of you like A child letting go of his kite There it goes up in the sky There it goes beyond the clouds For no reason why I can't cry hard enough No I can't cry hard enough For you to hear me now I'm going to look back in vain And see you standing there When all that remains Is just an empty chair And now that you're gone I can't cry hard enough No I can't cry hard enough For you to hear me now
