words heard?

I don’t even know your name
said the man to the one who had saved his life
in tears from a man once in control
He turned to the man who had saved his wife
and said ‘and I don’t even know your name.’

my baby was in the hospital and now I don’t know
where he is
here’s his picture, my boy
my infant who needed special care
I don’t know where—he is—he is
I don’t know where he is—

I can’t feed my baby without some pure water
they say don’t give boiled water it to a child
but what can I do
she’s hungry too
I just need some water for her, for her
I just need some water for her.

Where are we now? the astrodome’s full?
I guess we go someplace else new
but where will my family
what’s left of my family
find me…? find me..?

‘where is my daughter’ was all she could say
she’d pause then ask once again
‘where is my daughter? in her voice such pain
‘where is my daughter?’ oh help

words from a few of the ones who are hurting
so many others –no words
open our hearts our bounty our love
open our hearts once again…

God abides
Oh please abide
