A poem I wrote about how it feels outside the lines...


I  Donít  Want  To  Forget
__________________________

Life goes on and most of the time gets better,
And things are just forgotten,
Or do we try our best not to remember.
We donít want to remember the pain,
We donít want to forget those we loved,
But what about those of us who lost no one,
Are we supposed to not care,
What if we do care?
What can WE  do?
Everyone knows what itís like to lose someone special,
And we all know what hurt feels like,
So for those of us who didnít lose anyone,
We wonder why it hurts so much to see someone elseís pain,
We wonder if weíre supposed to feel anything at all.
How could we just sit along the sidelines
Saying nothing
Doing nothing
But what are we supposed to do?
Those spoken of are those of us who cry when we hear about it,
Those of us who wonder why it happened,
And those of us who wish we could take the pain away.
If only we could steal their pain
Make it so they could smile again.
If all we could do is take away one day of pain,
Would you do that much,
Would you do that little?
I pray to God every morning to help them find comfort,
Along the way I forgot to ask for my own comfort,
But then I find myself asking if I deserve comfort.
Shouldnít they receive that comfort,
Why should God waste it on me?
Of all the people lost and those left behind,
I should be one of the grateful ones,
But how can I feel grateful when I see someone elseís pain?
I think of how unfair it is,
That people who would risk their lives for me,
And I never knew them.
Driving down the road I never waved,
In a hurry,
Iíd just drive on by without a second thought.
I look now at police departments and fire departments,
I give a second thought now,
But am I too late?
Did I take them for granted before I knew them?
Far too many people lost,
Far too many people taken for granted.
I hold my loved ones closer now,
I tell them ĎI love youí when they walk out the door,
Because I still have the chance to.
I donít want to forget,
I never want to forget.
I donít want to be a reminder of a horrible thing,
I just want to be a reminder of those who died so I could live.
Heroes protect our country with such unselfish attitudes,
From Pearle Harbor,
To September 11th,
And all I wanted to say was thank you,
All I wanted to say was Iím sorry,
I just wanted to say I love you

Humanity has never seen a sadder tragedy than the death of innocent lives for the causes of hatred. God give us strength, give us hope and give us the decency to never allow such a cataclysm to occur again.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy in New York City. Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. The sponsors of this site are paying all expenses, and are thereby keeping the site free from advertising that would take away from the solemnity of the purpose. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE! Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
