I am 19 years old and can not even imagine what this is like for those of you that lost someone and/or survivors. I have never had the chance to see the wall in Washington D.C., but when the moving wall passed through my area I went several times. It left me with feelings that will never be forgotten...

I do not know who you are.
Names carved forever in granite.
Surrounded by so many, yet all alone.
Mourner's aching, reaching for memories.

I do not know who you are.
Tears fall just the same.
Running my hand along the smoothness.
Feeling each chiseled letter.

I do not know who you are.
Staring intently, hoping to catch a glimpse.
Grasping at the past.
Searching for the answer that will never come.
