A Shared Tragedy

All eyes glued
To our TV screens
Too stunned to react
To the surreal scenes.

Watching one tower
Being suddenly hit
Then the other
As we traumatized sit.

Still not believing
We listen in shock
As the Pentagon is next
The nation's rock.

So far away
Yet still terribly near
We share the pain
We feel the fear.

Lady Liberty cries
And so do we
As we rush to help
Ease the tragedy.

We send our prayers
Our blood and more
We send with a will
That's what neighbours are for.

from your friends in Canada.

Written 2 days after the Sept. 11/2001 tragedy
