Poetry Pleases: Missing - A Poem And A Very Special Appeal

Dave Horner is collecting poems with the aim of publishing them in a book to raise money for the Disasters Emergency Committe funds.

In the wake of the horror of the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York's Trade Centre twin towers, Dave wrote the poem Missing. Following the terrible tsunami disaster, the poem is as apposite now as it was in the week it was written.

Our hands reach out to comfort those
Who lost someone so dear
Not just this week but recently
When the news made it so clear

We hold you dear in all our hearts
We give you strength and love
You have good friends around you
And others from above

May all our thoughts and messages
Help you at this time
We think of you, always friends
The hurt is yours and mine

May we all come to understand
Something from this week
And may we get some comfort
from whatever 'tis we seek.
