A poem for bayside424's 9/11 contest, Remembering the Tragedy.
EDIT: Won third place! Thank you, I'm so proud. #^_^


Do you remember

When you held my hand

Through scary movies

And walking past the lion cages

And at night

To save me from the monsters


Who was there to hold your hand

Through the smoke and flames

To save you from the monsters?


Do you remember

When you told me it was okay

On the first day of kindergarten

And when Fishy died

And when I couldn’t sleep

Because of the nightmares


Who was there to tell you it was okay

Through the blood and pain

To save you from the nightmares?


Do you remember

When you took me into your arms

Because it was cold and my nose was pink

And when the bigger kids picked on me

And when I heard something scary

To protect me from the evil


Who was there to take you into their arms

Through the death and despair

To save you from the evil?

Not bad at all. I don't read poems usually. Not much the poet type myself. But why? That filial prayer adressed to a deceased parent is quite touching.
