I Had a Dream



I had a dream,
not a dream like the great Martin Luther King had,
but a dream that 911 never happened,
and the victims who died
were alive at home with their families.

I had a dream the Twin Towers
were standing tall
looking down on everyone as usual.

I had a dream the firemen
who lost their lives were still alive.
But when I woke up and realized that it was just a dream.

I thought to myself,
they are alive in another way.
They will always be alive
in the minds of their family
and everyone who loved them.

There they can never die,
they can never be forgotten.
