Shattered Sky

1

On the 11th anniversary of that 9/11 Tuesday
9-11-anniversary

We’ve dreamed of this, you and I
A tear drop from the shattered sky

Where birds fear flight in dark of morning
Where hearts shatter without any warning

We’ve been there now, down that concrete road
Carrying illusion of calm, that lost innocent load

Those packages full of unopened gifts of love
Those memories we could have had, but didn’t have

What we have is this: this piece of fallen debris
This shattered day, a missing calm in a stormy sea

We’ve dreamed of this, you and I
In sleepless nights, asking question, endless why?

Strands and shards of the safety dome of peace
A dark sky of dusty tears, shattered view, buckled knees.
