Disasters, Unbelievable, Sorrow
What can I say?
Time for mourning the dead
All of us: in our own way.

The lives that were lost
Families ripped apart,
The global grief of millions
Have now: to play their part.

In sorrow we can all give
The grief we understand,
Time for us to stand up
And give a helping hand.

Each morning we count the dead
Each day the numbers grow,
Tomorrow with renewed Faith
Life will begin to flow.

A flower in the fields of death
Will suddenly appear,
Men working all together
In friendship shed a tear..

In the midst of all your sorrow
As you stand side by side and weep,
Look for the morning sunrise
Memories of them, you keep.
