the flashing of lightning
the crashing of thunder
rainfall slashes against the walls
my heartbeat is pounding
and the tears are flowing
outside rages a sudden squall

and the nightmare returns
it wakes me once again
and that's when i remember you
because of you i lived
'cause you wouldn't give up
you said you had a job to do

it all happened so fast
it was time to go--NOW
i was on the sixtieth floor
it was a long trek down
and i wanted to rest
you said, only a little more

a fireman you were
a business man i was
caught in this terror together
but you encouraged me
with your courage and strength
bonded like birds of a feather

and somehow i got out
that awful, awful day
it was because of you i lived
when the tower collapsed
a part of me did, too
in nightmares the terror's relived

they finally found you
there amidst the concrete
they say you died a hero's death
somehow, i understand
but that don't take the pain
it's because of you i have breath

and the nightmares return
they wake me yet again
i don't think i even thanked you
because of you, i lived
'cause you went back inside
you said you had a job to do
For the 343...may we always remember
and never, EVER forget.

*THANK YOU* >tears<

Precious heavenly father in heaven,
Father, thank you for life
For it is so precious
Thank you for the grace you give us through your love
Thank you for our blessings, which we don't deserve, yet you give anyway
Father we lift this mother earth up right now in Jesus name
We ask that you blanket it with snow white light
We ask that you send Arch angel Michael and your other warriors here to battle out the enemys
We will not be defeated on earth ever
We will stand in the light of your truth
We ask this all in jesus name. amen

Precious, have a blessed day..Yes, we are battling the dark but we WILL PREVAIL..!!!

Love you,

This subject is always painful, Karla. Painful memories and yet necessary in this world full of selfish uncaring people.
