"Blacksburg"

This is a poem I wrote after the Va. Tech tragedy.




I feel a heartrending bond with your overwhelming pain.

A day that changed your world—to me is foreign and strange.

I wasn't’t there to feel your fear or wipe away the tears.

I only saw the terror like pictures on a page.

My heart did break, my eyes did flood—a sense of innocence lost.

An overpowering feeling like a dark cloud moved across.

The sense of shock, of disbelief came creeping ‘round the bend.

But, with this horrible beginning there is thankfully an end.

These times will fade to memory, your fears someday subside—and history will remember the day our children died.

You will be strong; you’ll soldier on—look towards the line of silver.
