i don't like remembering that september day
i don't like what i felt--terror, sorrow, dismay
i don't like what i saw live on my t.v. set
but i hope we remember and never forget

i don't like the way lives have been forever changed
i don't like not trusting others--it feels so strange
i don't like the empty space in new york's skyline
but i hope we remember what terror designed

i don't like not feeling secure like we once did
i don't like the idea of war--Heaven forbid
i don't like that the pentagon was damaged, too
but i hope we remember and learn from these clues

i don't like the nightmares that interrupt my night
i don't like the way my heart pounds away in fright
i don't like that heroes died in a midwest plot
but i hope we remember they for freedom fought

i don't like feeling so sad, bereft and alone
i don't like traveling very far from my home
i don't like the images that we saw replayed
but i hope we remember--forever--that day

i don't like having to explain myself again
i don't like recalling brings me great pain
i don't like the anger that is trapped in my mind
but i hope we remember--and terrorists, find

i don't like remembering that september day
i don't like what i've felt--terror, sorrow, dismay
i don't like what i saw live on my t.v. set
but i hope we remember and never forget

i hope we remember and never forget.

(((HUGS))) and love, karla. :(

Great tribute, sentiments I share with you, i do however like to remember how strangers became brothers, and God was brought back into our life and goverment, but wish it hadn't taken such a tradgedy.

Excellent write!! So many feelings and questions we all have felt about that day, and still do. Hopefully, by the grace of God, and compassion, we will never have to endure such a time again, other then what lives on in our memories.
