I mourn for those I have never known,
and for the chance I will never have.
Their deaths touched many, including me.
I feel a vacancy I never knew I had.
They were my brothers and my sisters of the world and beyond.
I feel a loss, by never having a bond,
It is hard to build faith when tragedy occurs.
Yearning to get back an opportunity missed.
I never knew you, but I feel your loss.
I never knew your family, but I feel their pain.
I know what loss is, as I know of love.
I will forever pray for your souls,
and for those who loved you so.
God Bless You All.
