And When they Fell

I did not know

The lives cut short

When planes came crashing in.

The years would add

To my dark list

Because events unfolded then.

And as the ripples

Touched the years

My friends began to fall.

They died in places

Without me

I thought I had escaped.

But planes that crashed

Took many years

To take away my friends.

I wish that I

Could trade my life

That you could know them now.

I did not know

That I could hurt

So hard and for so long.

The planes,

They surely killed my friends

Without a single touch.


Listen My Heart

And did I not say in my heart,
“How can we accept the Lord’s forgiveness.”
And did I not act as though I knew better than Him?
Yet He has been patient and merciful.

The Lord raises up and He brings down
He creates and He destroys
It is He who will judge
And I will not judge him.

Found While Lost

I hadn’t realized it had been so long
But now I see it has
And now I see another thing
The time has left a hole.

The days of sinking in the night
And writing down the feelings past
Have given way to different frights
And here I find myself.

Let the glory fall from me
And let it rise to him
Let the fury run its course
As the lights will dim.
