Where were you when it happened?

The day all eyes were closed.

That same day when our lips were sealed with hope,

And all hands were clasped in prayer.

Where were you when the children cried?

And parents held them in trembling hands.

Where were you when hearts broke and tears fell?

Where were you when I needed you?

I was there,

With my eyes closed, so tight

My lips were sealed with hope

And it was my hands, which were clasped in prayer.

I stood and saw the children cry,

Parents holding them in trembling hands

I watched you, as your tears fell.

And my heart broke,

But I was there.
