DOWNTOWN GIRL…09/11/2001


Another year

Another special visit

To  honor and remember 

All who lost their lives...

Including my dearest friend


I remember that day

All too well


As Barbara and I headed to our destination 

We wished each other 

To have a great day

Her stop was downtown 

Mine was uptown 


I called her the Downtown girl

She called me the Uptown girl


This Uptown Girl was the lucky one

Oh how I miss my Downtown girl 

I think of her every single day

And wonder why Barbara and not me...

I suppose it was destiny!

  • Accidental Poet

    An emotional write to say the least Laura. No exaggeration, I can feel your hurt. And this DID bring a few tears to my eyes. ((((HUGS))))

  • dusk arising

    I felt your words as if it were a friend of mine. In this we, the small people of the western world, stand as one embracing each others freedoms. Embracing the heatbreak of loss. I don't think we yet know the extent of what we have lost.

    into my favs.

    Must be a particularly bad time for you right now, Laura - You have provided a fitting tribute.
    And please don't think that my post on orchi's entry diminishes my respect for your personal loss. Take care of yourself.

  • James Michael

    I do remember this one, do you repost it every year? It’s written with your heart, it must be a very difficult loss for you. You ended this one well. “Destiny” a perplexing thing!
