We remember

we will always remember

the dread we felt that day


The bewilderment

disbelief and horror 

will never go away


These senseless acts still

strike me numb

after eleven years


And I honor each victim

family and loved one

though they can’t hear


This world is harsh enough

she doesn’t want our

added cruelty


But craves for peace, balance

respect and trust

to set our fears free


In numerology the number 11 represents:

  • Higher ideals
  • Invention
  • Refinement
  • Congruency
  • Balance
  • Fulfillment
  • Vision

Let us keep these words in mind today, eleven years after 9/11, as a token of hope for this day, this year, for the future.
