Remembering the Victims and Survivors of the 11/3/11 Japan earthquake and tsunami


Remembering the Victims and Survivors of the 11/3/11 Japan earthquake and tsunami

By May Kwek

How well we all remember that day
When the earth shook and changed it way
When the waves towered into the sky
And so many lost their lives

When the earth unleashed her rage
And took so many of any age
When tears can no longer express one’s grief
And any joy seems to leave

We hear your cry and feel your pain
For the many who were slain
For those who lost all that they had
We remember what pain you have

One year has passed since that dreadful day
But the pain is so deep that no word I can say
Can ever relieve the emptiness felt
And all I can do if offer condolence and help

But all the same, we remember
And in this case let the memories last forever
We will not forget. We are still here
And in our hearts and prayers we are near
