#911 – 14 years later

Standard

14 years later

September 11th is here again
14 years later with its reminders of pain!
It’s been easier to bear as the years roll
Because we have seen worse tragedies untold
But nothing prepares one for the pain of loss
Nor can one its emptiness afford
You’ve been gone all this while
And time has taken flights in miles.
I’ve met FK because of you
And had some sort of closure even if few
Remembering you and others today
In a somewhat sad happy way.

  1. Ha, what a nice tribute to your cuz!

    Maybe one day you’d make a trip to the Big Apple to see her name on the inscribed on the wall.

    Yes, I remember chatting about 9/11 with you, small world, eh?
