Death is the first terrorist(after fear
Non-negotiable entreaties fail.Shock and loss
Auric echoes spin orbits out of control.
We light candles for those whose Light extinguishes
Prayer and supplication for powers greater than us(all of these
On our knees or standing to attention,we grieve
for emptiness when we cannot fill the space
where those we loved once vibrant as nodding flowers
now becomes a hollow point.Memory is thin soup.
Drink to life!Every shadow passing knew the Light
All you will remember claims their lives
