VISITING THE WORLD TRADE CENTER TRIBUTE





Standing silently
In the viewing gallery
Staring at a wall filled with
Family pictures of faces lost,
Each different, but the same
Sharing a common fate,
A man standing near me
Saw my wet cheek,
“Did you lose someone up there?”
I knew none of them,
I knew no one who had lost any of them,
I was equally unrelated to all of them.
Did I lose someone up there?
I lost them all.
I had no reply,
I stood in silence.

  1. I recently sat in a thrift shop reading poetry by Richard and found his pieces to be often reflecting my life and observations. Thank you for putting you work out here for us.
