'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL'

("I WAS THERE")

You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news
On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room

with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.'

I held his fingers steady as he dialed.

I gave him the peace to say, Honey, I am not going to make it,

but it is OK...I am ready to go.

'I was with his wife when he called

as she fed breakfast to their children.

I held her up as she tried to understand his words

And as she realized he wasn't coming home that night.


I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a

woman cried out to Me for help.

'I have been knocking on the door

of your heart for 50 years!' I said.

'Of course I will show you the way home - only

believe in Me now.'


I was at the base of the building with the Priest

ministering to the injured and devastated souls.

I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He

heard my voice and answered.


I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,

with every prayer. I was with the crew as they

were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the

believers there, comforting and assuring them that their

faith has saved them.


I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan.

I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.

Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew

every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me

for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.


Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the

smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take

my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.

But, I was there.


I did not place you in the Tower that day.

You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were;

there in that explosive moment in time,

would you have reached for Me?


Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you.

But someday your journey will end.

And I will be there for you as well.

Seek Me now while I maybe found.

Then, at any moment, you know you are ready to go.'

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

~God~

Some one opened a discussion asking if anyone was planed to watch "Remember Me" on 9-11. My answer, yes, as well as "United 93", and "World Trade Center" as well as several documentaries, we have collected. I Just wanted to share ths poem that always hit me hard when I read or hear it.
Also, here is a picture of my husbands tattoo he got in memory of 9-11

Wow, thanks for posting this. It is such a touching poem, it gave me goosebumps. It's hard to believe that it's already been 9 years! I didn't know anyone personally affected by that day, until recently, but it did tear a huge whole in my heart as well. Thanks again for posting this, Brandi.
