Tribute To America
'You carry the troubles of all the world',
a friend once said, to me,
But how can you close your inner eye,
and pretend you just don't see?
How can you help but share, and feel
America's grief and pain,
Knowing they'll never hear, or hold
a loved one, once again ?
Right now, no words can take away
the anguish they go through,
They say that 'Time' heals everything,
Let's hope that this is true.
We stand beside, salute with Pride
the Courage of this Race,
The one thing in a sad, sad World
that 'Time' will not erase.
