I Remember It Still

It was  6 months ago today,

and I remember it still.

Those pictures are burned in my mind,

against my own heart's will.

I see those planes,

I see the smoke.

I watched the fear,

as on my sobs I choked.

The panic, the terror,

the hours I cried.

That whistling, earie beacon,

that told another  firefighter had died.

The scene in my mind,

all covered in white.

I cannot forget the saddness,

nor the utter fright.

I shall never forget,

that September day.

For all of those lost,

I weep and I pray.

I remember it still,

as new tears I shed.

This is in memory of 9/11,

and all those who are dead.
