“For Whom The Bell Tolls” - 9/11 (Reprise)

a poem by Richard Gildea, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

What’s happened here this day, this hour, I cannot fathom still
Yet here I am embroiled in cause which seeks alone to kill
Forgive this action that I take in faith that’s notwithstanding
Of consequences I believe beyond one’s understanding

Searing heat may take my flesh, yet doth my soul survive,
If I should take my life in hand and like the swallow dive
No rescue plan can save this man, I tell my tortured mind
No sacrifice of heroes made in seeking for to find

I’ve prayed the Lord please heed concern in thoughts of family
Of loved ones dear and friends so near who all do care for me
Pray warn the ones below on ground of imminent demise
Lest not one passing innocent may suffer by surprise

I share the realm of Angels as I hurtle down to earth
I sense the cradle of their wings, in spirit of rebirth
Existence not yet over as I bid my last farewell
For those who perpetrate such deeds, I hear the tolling of the Bell
