Why? - Poem by Jayne Davies
They came from far and yonder,
They gave their helping hands,
And many a soul will ponder,
At life's own, tragic plans.
On a dark and misty morning,
In the village of Aberfan,
As a new school day, was dawning,
Fate, dealt it's evil plan.
Who could foretell what would happen,
When a mountain moved that day,
It happened without warning,
And a nation sat to pray.
The search went on, into the night,
As time ticked slowly by,
Hoping for some signs of life,
It made a strong man cry.
Many a poor soul, lost a life,
A community ripped apart,
By the sad events, that happened that day,
It touched, so many hearts.
The years have passed, and time's moved on,
The village life's now strong,
But will never forget, that dreadful day,
On a sad October morn,
In memory of those lost to the Aberfan disaster. R.I.P
