Silence for 9/11

Nothing
 
All I can offer is nothing

Nothing is all I can say.

Breath viciously robbed from so many

In an incomprehensible way.

Safely detached from the horrors
I have no words to this day.
With thousands still living the nightmare

I sip warm tea in dismay.

All I can offer is silence

"Silence"
is all I can say.

written by me in 2011 for those who lost loved ones to the 9/11 terrorist attacks

Take care of yourselves, dear friends.
You are loved, and we have each other.
