Three¬†thousand roses –
The waves crash close by.
They don’t care.

A new life begins
Tears of the rose are washed away.
And what might the young one say
As these lives fade to gray?

In honor of the many loved and brave countrymen of 09/11/2001…. Lest we forget.

“Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.”

William Butler Yeats….
