September Past
Written by Michelle Holt


In remembrance of September past
Haunted by the calls to mass
Tears fall from our eyes
We still can hear the cries

The fateful day when lives were torn
The families taken leaving lives unborn
The men and women who heard the call
They served us bravely one and all

The lives unsung
The songs undone
The hero in the common place
The lives traded for a nameless face

Oh, September we will always remember
The innocence now gone
But the heroes journey will stay in our hearts
And with that we’ll carry on
