The Things We Lost In The Fire

A free verse poem dedicated to all of those who have faced the flames and battled through this pain… You are so very strong, and you will survive this. Word’s cannot express your loss, nor the things you’ve lost… but a time will come when this pain will heal…Together we can, and will re-build…

Do not be afraid – for we still have each other.

It is not our possessions that define us, but rather the company we keep.
