September Bells - Poem by Mercedes Himel

I ring the bell in memory
of the sorrow that befell

The country that we love so nuch
and thought that all was well

My bell tolls for those whose
lives and dreams were lost
Who suffered in so many ways
and a so high a cost

For those who live affected
by the trauma of that sad day

May God clear their minds and
peace be with them on their way

We recall that day in the year
two thousand one

And pray with hopeful hearts
that all evil now is done

So ring your bell and all remember

Our USA came together
that eleventh of September!

    A poem by my Grandmother, Mercedes Kerrigan Himel, to mark the one year anniversary of my brothers presence in the twin towers attack on September 11th.
    She was a lover of poetry and wrote often. She's missed by all.
