About the Poem

Our Lady has seen many things; the poor, the oppressed, the "huddled masses yearning to breathe free." Now she has seen another sight ... the desecration of her borders by evil.

How would she feel if she were real?

The Day I Saw My Lady Cry

She stood there with her torch held high
To watch planes falling from the sky
As silver bullets ripped apart
The center of her loving heart
With disregard for sanity
In senseless act of lunacy
She saw her children fall and die
The day I saw my lady cry.

I LIFT MY LAMP ... so reads her plaque
Just miles from terrorist attack
Her open doors now violated
By pure evil orchestrated
Hounds of Hell have been released
And Good must rise to kill the Beast.
I saw her head droop, shaking "Why?"
The day I saw my lady cry.

Her tears will bring on bitter rain
Unleashing winds of hurricane
To circle globe in whirlwind force
Uncover evil at its source
Then seek exacting recompense
From those who prey on innocents.
They'll not forget, as time goes by,
The day they made my lady cry.

This poem touched me so deeply. I lived in NY at the time of the attack and I believe I saw her cry too.

I've been searching all over for a poem that will work on my tribute page on MySpace. This poem says it all. I lost my sister in Tower 1 and when I read this poem it touched me. I'm going to use it on my page and give the author the credit he deserves. Awesome job and thank you from the bottom of my heart! Again, thank you for this awesome poem! Sherry Stock

OMG! I just started to bawl when I read this poem. My dad was a fireman in 9-11 and died. He has always been a part of my life and it shattered my heart to have him taken away from me. He always talk about the Statue of Liberty as "My Lady" and the way you wrote the poem it just brought back all the memories of my dad. Thank-you so much for this poem!

I still remember this one Michael, and it still moves my heart while reading it. Glad to have your book here so I am able to read you whenever I have time. ((hugs)) Theresia aka Charisma

Very earthy, perhaps a true "va nu pieds" poet. moving, unique, profound, "raide","epouvantable" I heard her weep. for the sacre coeur of freedom , democracy, consideration, reason and intelligence. oh how i yearn to see these people think, reason,understand, appreciate and embrace. will it ever be possible in such a region of the world?
Lavone
Very moving poem. touched me deeply.
Senna

I would like to take the time to tell you that you have obviously touched many hearts with your Beautiful poem. I have to say that the tears I just cried were different from the tears that were shed on Sept.11. I cried the for the people who were killed and or injured. For people who lost a love one. All of those people were the most important person in someones life and for that I cried for America. Now I cried because I see that we are truly strong people. I cry to see how you and others can put this into words and not only do people read what you write but they feel it too! I know I felt it and will feel the words of your poem for years to come. You and the rest of America are in my prayers. We will continue to stand tall. Amazing!
Michelle
