In the Pits of Despair
For the innocent people who went to work or got on a
plane on Tuesday.
For the brave heroes who courageously came to their
rescue and never again saw the light of day.
For all the pain and sadness they are enduring.
Please God, never let this happen again anywhere.
None of this had to happen.
When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled
with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
and each time you think of me I know you'll miss me,too;

But then I fully realized that this could never be,
for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
And when I thought of wordly things that I'd miss come
I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with

Though there were times you did some things you knew you
You have been forgiven and now at last you're free.
So won't you take my hand and share my life with me?"
So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far
For everytime you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
