The wetness of their tears

 

Maybe the rain today

is really the tears of those who died

 

Maybe the rain today

is  the tears of those who lost someone

 

Maybe the rain today

are tears shed years later

 

Not all day

But long enough

Each of us is effected by the rain

 

It is wet and cold

Enough to wake us up

 

From ourselves and remember

Those who gave their lives

Those who fought for others

 

The rain continues to pour down

It creeps into the cracks

 

The ones we don’t expect.

The rain, a reflection of tears.

 

Today, 9/11

We wait for the sun

the sun to pull away the clouds

To dry the tears, put away the wetness

 

I remember,

So I don’t push away the rain

 

I welcome the tears, the coolness

Because it isn’t something I can just brush off.

 

Tomorrow will happen soon

But right now, my heart yearns to give comfort

 

9/11 families, victims, bystanders.

 

Prayers to you all…. I won’t forget…..I promise
