    From the corners of her saddened eyes
    her heart swells and spills
    in clear liquid form
    to slide down her cheeks
    and drown her neck...
    beaten down with regrets...
    words left unsaid
    actions left undone
    mind focused on one
    though thousands are feeling the same bereft...
    trapped with death
    wondering why she didn't remember or stop
    this morning
    to kiss her children and husband goodbye...
    tortured by the ragged breath and muffled cries
    of others too far to touch but yet so close by...
    every muscle aching...bones broken...soul broken...
    prayers on her unholy lips
    asking for mercy and for God to show the way...
    reverbing a childhood verse she was forced to memorize-
    "Ye though I walk through the valley of death
    I will fear no evil
    for thou art with me..."
    angry at the spiteful powers that be
    that put her here...
    hurt and full of anger and fear-
    away from her family
    away from her love...
    oh why was she in so much a rush that she could not take the time...
    never had the time
    to stop and smell the roses
    and kiss the faces and hug close those she revered dear...
    weight lifting off her chest suddenly
    and basked in a blinding light...
    voices of angels hollering joyously that she's alright
    and they are taking her home...
    taking her home...
    surrounded by strong arms that lifted her
    out of confusion and dispair
    out of darkess...stagnant indignation...
    into the light of the sun and the cool air...
    clouds cheering and sobs abounding
    as she realizes...
    yes...
    realizes...
    that she is safe
    and she is alive
    she goes limp with relief
    thinking hopefully that she is able
    to let her absolute gratitude show
    as she clung loosly
    and stared adoringly
    into the face
    of her unknown hero.

    For all of the survivors and heros that have perservered in this time of tragedy.
    May God bless you all.
