Poems of  September 11, 2001


We Awoke...

We  awoke this morning, The sun shining bright.
Not knowing the day held such a plight.

Our world as we knew it came tumbling down
Our hopes and our dreams lay all around.

The evil people who have done us this wrong.
Have brought us together and made us strong.

Our father in heaven will see us through this.
 Our Family and Friends we will always miss.

We will look to the heavens and see you close by, 
but we will always wonder why you had to die.

May God bless America on this tragic day.

Free people grieve today 
for lives that we have lost,
patriots paying AGAIN
 for our freedom's cost.

Not one drop of blood
 taken by evil demand
 shall lay wasted in
some terrorist's hand.

Raising from the ashes 
of a somber New York Sky
America will remember
and you will never die.

The Day The World Cried

Life gone in an instant
With blasts of hate from air
Caught within a moment
This deed done brings despair

Contemplate this evil
What good has this deed done
Left us filled with hatred
This battle never won

Torn with mass destruction
Deliberate hate designed
For only in one instant
Deep sorrow for mankind

Families filled with horror
Hearts are filled with tears
Within us saddest moment
What purpose brings us here

Let us join united
To say a silent prayer
For those who were the victims
Their voices we must hear

People joining hands now
Creating biggest chain
Bringing forth a miracle
Where evil brought such pain

Innocent are dead now
What power does this give
Lost within the horror
But yet we all must live

Fear cannot bring power
For deep inside hate looms
The power of the people
In silent prayer resumes

Hands that reached so bravely
To help those find a way
With hearts of grateful nation
We bow our heads and pray

For all those who are lost now
On this most dreaded day
We pray that God will give us
The strength to find a way.

A LITTLE PRAYER

May the angels keep you till morning,
May they guide you through the night,
May they comfort all your sorrows,
May they help you win the fight.

May they keep watch on your soul,
May they show you better ways,
May they guard you while you're sleeping,
May they see you through your days.

May they show you new hopes,
May they still your every doubt,
May they calm your every fear,
May they hear you when you shout.

May the angels keep you till morning,
More than this, I cannot pray,
And if the angels ever fail you,
Then may God be there that day.

A MESSAGE 

I've cried to God as I've beheld 
The world wrapped up in fear 
Of  lack and death and war that looms 
To snatch lives held so dear 

I said, "My God! - Have you not heard 
The newsmen on TV?! 
Do you not know the shape we're in?! 
Do you not care for me?!" 

"I'm scared, Dear Jesus! - Help us! - Please! 
There's news of fear and war 
And I'm afraid, Lord - I admit! - 
Of what might be in store." 

"Peace, be still, My child," He said
"And hear now what I say 
For I have seen and heard the cries 
Of those who, to Me, pray. 

"Keep your eyes upon ME now 
Not what you hear or see
And, as you do, you'll keep My peace - 
IF your mind stays on ME!" 

"It matters not what one man says 
Or even many more 
For I am God, and I decide 
Each day what lies in store." 

"I've told you there would be such times 
When, of these things, You'd hear 
I told you so you'd be PREPARED 
And FULL OF PEACE, not fear." 

"For all these things MUST be fulfilled 
Yet MY WORD fails not 
For I AM still your Hiding Place
As all the fires rage hot." 

"You're hid beneath MY shadow now 
And you can rest in Me 
Yes you can trust My Words of LOVE 
To last eternally." 

"For I'm your Father, Counselor, Friend 
Your Alpha and your End 
And if this was the world's last day 
Be sure, for you, I'd send." 

"I've promised I'd save you a place 
If you would stay in Me 
Stay pure and faithful, eyes on Me 
And, victory, you'll see." 

"I can't tell you if it's 'the end' - 
NO human man can know 
But I CAN tell you, it IS close, 
So be prepared to go." 

"Each day I give you, reach in love 

To save another soul 
For snatching them from Me for Hell
Is truly Satan's goal." 

"Occupy until I come 
Live each day FULL in ME 
Just keep your eyes upon MY face 
And know that I DO see." 

"I see the world, I see YOUR LIFE 
And I DO care for YOU 
And know, no matter WHAT occurs 
My love for you stands TRUE." 

"I'm Alpha and Omega - God - 
I'm King and Lord of ALL 
I'll be right near to care for you 
As, on My name, you call." 

"For I can change the hearts of Kings 
And I, their hearts, do try 
And I'M the one who formed this world 
And says when it shall die." 

"So, USE this time to SEEK THE LOST 
And tell them of My Love 
That they, too, may be saved and live 
With Me, again, above." 

"Don't listen to fear's voice - hear MINE! 
Then STAND on what you've heard 
Don't fear yours or the world's fate - 
It's destined by MY WORD." 

"Keep your eyes on ME, My Child, 
And let Me wipe each tear 
For I am God and IN CONTROL - 
So live in peace, not fear."

Go Light Your World

There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning,
Some dark and cold
There is a spirit who brings the fire
Ignites his candle and makes his home

Carry your candle,
Run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle and go light your world

Frustrated brothers,
see how he's tried to
Light his own candle some other way
See now our sister,
She's been robbed and lied to
Still holds a candle without a flame

So carry your candle,
run to the darkness
Seek out the lonely,
the tired and worn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle and 
go light your world

We are a family whose hearts are blazing
We raise our candles and light up the sky
Praying to our Father, "In the name of Jesus
Make us a beacon in darkest times!"

Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle and go light your world.
