This is a song I wrote in tribute to loved ones lost on 9-11. I can't sing it to you so I listed it under "poetry"

Heaven's Gate

As I sit and drink my coffee
I seem to reflect upon the times.
Sitting in the noise of all the silence
Explosions erupt inside my mind.
Then suddenly you're here with me
I feel so very close.
Then I turn and see your face
Is this what Heaven choose?
...Just one more time to be with you
...and to look into your eyes.
...To fill my heart with gladness
...then turn my head to cry.
Cause he's taken you away from me
As you entered Heavens Gate.
I wish I could have saved you
At least my love was never late.
I've shared in all of your joy.
Laughed with you in the rain.
I would give my life for you.
Just to have you back again.
...Just one more time to be with you
...And to look into your eyes.
...To fill my heart with gladness
...Then turn my head to cry.
So I walk with you again today.
As you're always on my mind.
You fill my heart with love.
But I've truly come to find.
That your memories live forever.
So real inside of me.
And we'll always be together.
my dreams are my reality.
...Just one more time to be with you
...and to look into your eyes.
...To fill my heart with gladness
...then turn my head to cry.

John, I won't lie, I've read all around this until I couldn't fight temptation any longer.
So I knew when I opened it, before I closed this page I'd be crying. I am.
I vowed that I'd not write a tribute for this anniversary, but to be honest it's killing me....I want to so bad..
This is deeply touching, and heartbreaking..but it's done with an honorable respect...
Bless You..
