So many months have passed


And a dark cold wind yet blows


Others move past it, while we will not


And on and on it goes


So many turn a blind eye


See only what they want to see


Ignoring the day that echoes yet


For so many futures never to be


Weeks and months and years have passed


And still that cold wind blows


Others move around or past it


And so on and on it goes


Do they struggle to not look behind them


Do they close their hearts so they do not have to feel


Do they try anything to avoid the subject


To never face it so they donít have to deal


Life, of course, much march on


But the memories of those lost march too


You can fight not to believe


And hold that shackled fear deep inside of you


Turning that blind eye


Seeing only what you want to see


Ignoring the day that lives on in many


So many moments now never to be


And so the months may pass


That dark wind like a siren blows


Rolling through me like a thunder strike


And deep inside I know


Turn away if you have to


Look right through if you must


Weíre still waiting for the fires to dim


For an end to the embers and dust


And if you will forget


What you never really knew


If you never felt the sting of tears


And the hurt of a heart turned blue


Then you will go on as if it never happened


You will never see that truth


You will see only the sun in the dark


You will not know you never had to choose


You can stand at a river of blissful ignorance


And drink until youíve had your fill


Then turn and walk away from an invisible past


Towards dreams hate did not kill


Youíll walk on with a heart thatís not heavy


With a soul that may hold innocence still


You may turn away from them


While some of us just never will


Weeks, then months, now years have flown by


A dark wind builds and ultimately blows


Millions have turned and walked away


And on and on it goes

This made me think of history and how it's made. It's like saying "History moves on no matter what."

(((cade)))

thank you for reminding us of that awful day, when innocent lives and seemingly unpregnable buildings were brought down or damaged in a rain of terror.

you've captured so many people's actions today in compelling lines, such as

"...turning that blind eye
seeing only what you want to see
ignoring the day that lives on in many
so many moments now never to be..."

and

"...turn away if you have to
look right through if you must
we're still waiting for the fires to dim
for an end to the embers and dust..."

(((cade))), believe me, i will always remember and never forget. although i didn't lose anyone, i know people that did. my heart breaks for them.

(((HUGS))) and love, karla. *tears*
