One Year: 9/11 Anniversary

The calendar says it’s been a year
I don’t see how that can be
Our daughter still wakes me up
Calling out for her daddy.

She’s only four years old
How can she understand
She’ll never again reach out
And hold her daddy’s hand.

How can she be expected
To believe what I can’t explain
That daddy wont be back
To hold her close again.

I close my eyes and feel you
And tears run down my face
Unbelievable tragedy
Out the door you raced.

You had a job to do
It was your life, I know
I just wish I’d held you closer
And not counted on tomorrow.
