    Default POEMS WRITTEN for FireFighters and Families 911

    American Tragedy
    NEW YORKERS and ALL AMERICANS

    Tragedy that was unforseen
    Brutal actions cold and mean
    Innocent victims,Wept with Fear
    Sounds of Screams as Planes collide
    Firefighters at the scene
    Oh Dear God! This is not a Dream
    Everyone watched in disbelief
    Tears of grief and Pain all over
    Bodies Scattered Everywhere
    Trapped in the rubble and debris
    Many missing, Few are found
    Who could do something so Profound
    World Trade Towers melted down
    Terrorists will be found
    America is United
    ONE Together UNDIVIDED
    Peace is what We Stand for
    Not Barbaric Acts of War

    Candle Of Love

    Firefighters ,Police Officers,ALL Touched by the Events of Sept 11th .

    Candle of Love Forever
    Burning Flames Together
    Eternal Glow..Sparkling light
    Keep Alive ....Shining Bright
    I will have a wicker handy
    In case the wind should blow
    I will keep the Candle Lighted
    So that friendship will grow
    And if by chance the light dies down
    Remember in your hearts
    That only the wax melted
    The love will never part....

    Firefighters Legacy

    Raymond Meisenheimer,Peter Brennan.William McGovern,John Crisci ,NYFD

    Firefighters! Where are you?
    Can you hear the cries?
    Searching for you Frantically
    Prayers that you survived
    Pieces of the broken hearts
    Forever to be mended
    Shattered wives and families
    Left here unattended
    It rips my heart to hear them plead
    So many questions to answer
    Saddened that still there will remain
    So many answers with questions
    Eyes filled with tears
    Ever growing fears of
    Bodies that may never be recovered
    Remains may be gone
    You will ALWAYS LIVE ON
    YOUR Legacy Forever Uncovered

    Firefighters Prayer

    Firefighters and Rescue Teams Everywhere

    God Bless the Firefighters
    Who selflessly plunge in
    To help us all who are in need
    Without regard for their own safety
    The Bravest and most persistent of
    Men, Unfullfilled until they have
    Saved many lives,even at the risk of
    Their own survival
    Courage demonstrated is beyond words
    No scream for Help goes unheard
    Thank God for Firefighters
    I commemorate You
    For all the FEARLESS acts
    That you do
    All the efforts that you give
    Firefighters make the world
    A SAFE Place to live!

    Ground Zero

    Triology to All Brave Heroes of Ground Zero

    Open wounds of Americans...
    Scabs have not begun to form..
    Not for many years from now..
    Will we ever recover the scourn?
    Stabbing hearts of parents
    Who lost daughters...
    Daughters who lost parents...Lost
    Multiple friends still not done...
    Lost were spouses and an only son.
    Mark the date when pain began
    September Eleventh Two Thousand One
    Torn apart deep inside...part of me
    With those people died...Live in grief
    Everday...thorns pierce deep..no relief
    Platforms now built to welcome mourners
    Who hid and cried on every cornor
    Ground Zero is a sacred Place
    Heroes Rest and Angels occupy space.

    Holiday Star Dust

    Firefighters ,Families who Lost Loved Ones 9-11-2001 Find Peace

    Star Dust in Air..Loved ones Lost.. from the world we live in
    Alive in the Hearts of those left behind...
    From Dawn to Dawn....in pain to mourn.
    Physical body was borrowed time..their
    Presence and Aura remains adourned.
    Holidays seem to accentuate their Loss
    God has lifted them from Lifes Cross
    Look up at the sky when Holidays are here
    See the twinkling stars..Loved ones appear
    If you must..Shed a tear..feel not alone
    Spirits are near..I Weep with compassion,my sorrow I send
    A Prayer for Broken Hearts to mend
    Let Holidays be a time for miracles to come,
    Fill empty Hearts With Peace and Love..
    Trim the tree with Lights of Hope, Let
    Gifts of Friendship be your antidote.
    Lighted Candles shine upon you..Wisdom,Understanding to Comfort...Renew
    May your lives be Blessed with inner strength to endure
    Until....Someday you to will Be In Gods Light
    With your family forever to Reunite

    World Peace

    People of God
    Do not hate
    Love and respect
    Teach, Create
    Waste not a moment
    Treasure each Day
    Live to the fullest
    Let not life slip away
    Take the time to dry a tear
    Comfort those who live in fear
    Put a smile on many faces
    Blindfold their color,
    Mask their races
    Make a mark...instead of a scar,
    Someday you will be a shining Star

    Fire Angels

    NYFD Prayers that our Angels Are Guiding You to their Recovery

    Fire Angels in the sky
    Looking down...wonder why
    Here on earth for you we cry
    Search for all while above you fly
    Not for a moment will we give up hope
    Each piece of metal, piled debrie examined
    Carefully in hopes to retrieve...Tons of
    ashes and scraps to uncover with
    despriration your remains to recover
    Round the clock fellow brothers dig
    Hoping for the recovery of every buried Rig
    Prayers forever to be said as each
    FireFighter bows his weary head...
    Look Down upon them and shine your light
    Guide them as they work through the night
    Keep them safe from your fall
    Fire Angels Forever on call

    Stars And Stripes In Heaven

    Honor of Our Brave Heros Independence Day Tribute

    Listen to the Bells Ring Loud
    Angels celebrate on a white Cloud
    Chanting words as Freedom brings
    Voices echoe songs we sing
    Though the day has just begun
    Freedom beats like a drum
    Hearts Full Of Love and Peace
    Americas' Tribute Sweet Release
    FireFighters... Heros Today
    Lost souls for whom we pray
    Rest In Peace with honor we wear
    Stars and Stripes in Heaven we share
    Fireworks light up the sky
    In Honor for those who have died
    Marked are the lives of the Brave
    God has their souls..they have been saved
    Eagles fly where no man has gone
    Red White and BLUE
    Flags wave on

    Rose Petals and Tears

    Red velvet Rose Petals tossed in the Air
    For every Lost Angel rolls down a Tear
    Though has passed one Year..Alive in spirit
    Presence is here..Selfless and Brave
    That Horrific Day..Sacraficed life to save
    Forever will play beyond today never forget
    Firefighters could not turn Away
    Arrived at the scene despite of the screams
    visions of trauma are now everyones Dreams
    Scraps of metal and debrie ashes to dust
    Memory..Heros climb the ladder to Heaven
    Etched in Stone...September..Day Eleven
    Red Velvet Rose Petals vision unclear
    Eyes Blurred shed many tears
    White Doves fly high Above..
    Angel wings Spread.. spirits of Love
    Candles burning..glow so bright
    Radiates warmth and light through
    Ground Zero Eulogy sight
    Sacred forever...Day and Night
