A Year Has Passedcountry as flag
Remembering September 11, 2011Way too fast
the year has passed.
Yet we'll always remember
that day in September.

The loss of lives
of husbands and wives
Fathers and mothers
sisters and brothers.

Thousands went
to help and search.
What sites they saw
made stomachs lurch.

Though physically
we were not there,
In hearts and minds
we all despaired.

We did not think
it could happen to us,
But now that it has
we have to show our stuff.

Those people can run,
but not hide forever.
They better believe
America's more clever.
