    The Day Was So Clear


    The Day was so clear, I could almost see forever.
    The spot to which I perched allowed me to see all over.
    The sky is so blue, so very few clouds, a beautiful view.
    I felt the earth shake, so hard it touched me way up here.
    I saw the smoke rise, felt the heat blast, the flames go past.

    The Day was so clear, but my eyes cannot see.
    I felt myself falling, as though in a movie.
    I heard the rushing of the wind, as though a hurricane.
    I heard the sirens scream knowing you came.

    The Day was so clear, I can see forever.
    I can see you digging for me,
    I am somewhere above watching the scene as though in a movie.
    The dust that settles on you is not just from the building.
    The dust that settles on you is me...
    Thanking you.
