MEMORIES A Tribute to 9/11

Written by LynnSollitto

My first true love
Standing tall
Against an oil-filled sky
of pin points
Shining lights
gazing up

I loved you without condition
in your grand splendor
So intelligent of the world’s ways
You taught me
confidence of a wise man
You taught me
how to reach outside myself

I learned you
I could learn anything

My first true love
Fond memories
Now and always
will only be fond memories

So pure in such polluted times
and upon your collapse
Innocence plummeted
dirty rain from the sky
You no longer stand

But without fail
your wisdom
Lives on in my memories
