9/11/2001 Only minutes before he would perish Leaving behind the wife and children he loved and cherished One brave man recited the Lord’s Prayer then said- “let’s roll” At that very moment God held his Haloed soul. To all the precious people lost Over eighty nations in all The world will never forget you The world will never forget what we saw. To all the devastated relatives Of loved ones who would die We know they’re now in heaven Yet we understand why you still weep and cry. To all of those who knew someone Now trying to understand and find peace With only memories left you We pray that some day your suffering will cease. To all of New York’s Finest The firefighters and the police Your loyalty to your fallen brother Never wavered once despite your pain and grief. To all the volunteers and rescue workers Each of you a hero America will never forget you America will never forget ground zero. To each and every nation To all religions worldwide Never stop believing The truth is on your side. To all our brave men and women Defending freedom so proudly overseas A nation is grateful to you God bless and God speed. Yes only minutes before he would perish Leaving behind the wife and children he so loved and cherished One brave man recited the Lord’s Prayer then said- “let’s roll” And at that very moment God held his Haloed soul. “LET’S ROLL” ~ Rick Punch ~ ©used with permission September 11 Poem is a poem dedicated to all the men and women who perished in the attacks on our country on September 11, 2001, and to those who continue to fight for freedom worldwide.
