Swissair Flight 111 dissastor Sept 2/98

When Sea Meets Sky

(Swissair Flight 111 Disaster)


On the fateful day of September second

In the year nineteen ninety-eight

Swissair Flight one, one, one

Reported she was in running late


An SOS went out across the air

A pilot’s frantic last goodbye

He’d jettison fuel over the Atlantic

This was their last goodbye


Two hundred and twenty nine souls

Perished on that fateful flight

Leaving loved ones forever saddened

Such tragedy that deadly night


As the families prayed and hoped

Searchers raked the cold calm sea

Tears ran like raindrops

From the things they had to see


When the search was finally over

No survivors was the cry

Such was the fate of man women and child

When joined to the sea from the sky.

Hi bro,

Hadn't you once wrote a poem about the oil rig that had gone down off Newfoundland or was that a song.

Love ya,

Gutting... thank you for reminding us of such tragedy that needs not to be forgotten. But just the picture freezes the blood in my veins, Pops. Reckon I'd become a ghost myself in Newfoundland... Such a great pity that this fitting tribute could be applied in various instances of desperate loss down through the decades. I am sure it is a write that would be treasured by every one of the unsung mourners. Bless you and thank you... your heart is priceless. LOL Kate xx
