In the case of history,
there are times of world peace
then political warfare.
We are frozen in time,
in one of the darkest hours.
Folks listening to the news, awe-struck
Never realizing
That a thing of this magnitude can happen.
For all the folks I never met,
for all the folks that knew these
special people
You will never forget.
Remember that person in your heart,
The years or a moment in time,
A memory of a pleasant word
or of a friendly face.
For they are the special folks.
Those times, no one can erase.
The biggest gifts life gives
are memories and love,
To hold in our hearts and look upon.
Our hearts are with you.
