April 26th: Together We Stood

Dazed I stood at the site I could not believe
Surely my eyes were wrong and attempting to deceive

A flash of red had led me to this world unspoken
She was trapped under his body so utterly broken

Still I don't know what I thought through all of that commotion
But I had to preserve what a father had saved with his unending devotion

Through the muck and rain I wiped her tears
As she told me of her life, hopes, and fears

I prayed this light would not fade away
Like the sun on that stormy April day

Above we heard from under our soaked blanket
A cry from the others telling her she was going to make it

I am not the one who deserves praise for such bravery
For the hero's were our neighbors who showed true comradery
