Voices From The Sky 9/11/01

<center>So sad
So very, very sad
Those voices from the sky
So little time
So much to say, In those
Moments before they die

So few
So very, very few
The words that said goodbye

So far away
So very, very far away…
Yet heard…every whisper…every sigh

So many…
I love you's so many stifled cries
So many pauses…so many tear-filled eyes

So lovely
So very, very lovely
Those precious words from on high

So silent
So very, profoundly silent
After that last goodbye

Those last 'I love you's,
Tell the kids I love them too
We'll meet again… me and you'

Phones gently
So, so gently
Laid down and moved aside

So hard
So very, very hard to leave
Those voices from the sky
