September Eleventh (Acrostic)

In memory of all those who perished during the tragic events of September 11th 2001
and in honour of all those who risked or sacrificed their own life for the sake of others.



Sirens lament, a September song    
Echoing sadness of memories so strong.
Prayers for the souls of those taken away,
Thoughts for their families, in our hearts to this day.
Evening came early, the night stayed so long.
Morning started so bright, but went tragically wrong.
Blue cloudless skies, the sound of a plane
Eternal reminders bring that day back again…
Remember it all, let it not be in vain


Emergency crews, just ordinary guys
Laid their lives on the line as hell rained from the skies
Every last one of them selfless and brave
Valiant heroes with one aim – to save
Each one forever remembered with pride
No hearts left untouched by the many that died.
There’s one lasting hope as the world now remembers
Heartfelt wishes that peace could arise from those embers.
