Part 1 of 9/11

He woke up to take a shower She must have already gone to work at the towers. He heard their son Jake playing in the background. He was making breakfast when he heard the sound. He walked outside to hear people screaming and Running around. Not sure what to think He went to the phone when a bad feeling continued to sink. He saw the light on the answering machine flash so he pushed play Only to here screaming, crying, and her say “Some things wrong And the line to get out seems so long. I don’t have much time to say what I want to say. If you ever fall in love again don’t let her get away. Cherish your moments with Jake each and every day. Tell Jake to stand tall and never lie. Tell him all the time he was the apple of my eye. I know he can’t under stand at age seven But someday I will see you both in heaven And what ever you do Remember I will always love you! If for some reason I can’t make it back to you.” He dropped his orange juice on the floor. Jake stood by the door. He looked at all the pictures on the wall. All the memories they made scattered down the hall. The vacation in Mexico where they fell in love. Their honeymoon Hawaii when they couldn’t get enough. The day their son was born Pictures of his last birthday and the sundress she wore, Then he heard her vice again and the tears began to pour. “Some things wrong And the line to get out seems so long. I don’t have much time to say what I want to say. If you ever fall in love again don’t let her get away. Cherish your moments with Jake each and every day. Tell Jake to stand tall and never lie. Tell him all the time he was the apple of my eye. I know he can’t under stand at age seven But someday I will see you both in heaven And what ever you do Remember I will always love you If for some reason I can’t make it back to you.”
