    "Distant Witness" (a 9/11 tribute) by Kelly Ann Malone - Member since 1/04

    I don't live close; I did not hear the thunder or the crash.
    I didn't hear the cries for help or see the metal thrash.

    I didn't witness buildings fall. This was on TV.
    I didn't run from plumes of smoke. I know that wasn't me.

    I didn't arrive with photo in hand looking for my wife.
    I didn't tell my only son his dad has lost his life.

    I didn't send my oldest child into a burning tower.
    To try and save whomever he could and die within an hour

    I cannot say that I was hurt while saving someone's life.
    I cannot say I've ever lost a daughter, son or wife.

    I do not daily pass this site where bodies still decay.
    While people who must get to work must pass it everyday.

    I am not brave; I do not grieve for loss beyond compare.
    I know I am not a party to the death and the despair.

    In some small way I'd like to say I hold you in my heart.
    Although this won't amount too much I hope it is a start.

    There was a part inside of me that died upon that day.
    I cannot look at life the same or trust in the same way.

    I look to God to give me strength, my trust is in his grace.
    And deep inside within my soul, I find a peaceful place.
