POEM of REMEMBRANCE
Michael R. Greifenstein
West Point Class of 2002
11 SEPTEMBER 2001
A clear sunny morning,
Not a cloud in the sky,
Everyone just, a mere passer-by.
When in a moment of time the day went on end,
And suddenly everyone became a close friend.
For two steel structures
high in the sky,
Became targets of terror, no one sure quite why.
Both standing tall like two burning wicks in the wind,
Hundreds of heroes could be seen rushing in.
As with every good candle they came to an end,
Taking the souls of many a friend.
Everyone touched in one
way or another,
While flames of this tragedy have yet to be smothered.
Let us gain strength from this grief and sorrow
For America will be stronger come tomorrow.
And strangers we passed on our morning journey
Will now be our friends for life and eternity.
GOD BLESS ALL THE INNOCENT
VICTIMS AND HEROES OF 11 SEPTEMBER 2001
