Time can heal all wounds they say,

Were they present on this tearful day?

Watching in horror as lives fell apart,

Images rending our sorrow filled hearts.

An icon of the success they had achieved,

Unable to be destroyed or so they believed.

Crumbling down with so many inside,

God rest the souls of those who died.

Filling us with our most dreaded fears,

Let us never forget this day of tears.
