Gone is the Day
by Herbert L. Burd

The river's are crying into the sea's
Silence has over come countries and cities
Shooting stars are flying through the skies
Look at the Statue of Liberty how she cries
But the flag of freedom still proudly flies.


Candles are burning all over the world tonight
A dark shadow has fallen over the twilight
There's a stillness which is heavy in it's weigh
Playground's where children used to play
Is calm now, for gone is the day.


Madness has come and shown it's face of tragedy
Touched by cowards hero's they are not to be
Gave us such a dark day in human history
People working hand in hand with no words to say
Free world stands in dismay, for gone is the day.


Gone is the day but not forever
Price for freedom a high one to endeavor
Candles are burning all over the world tonight
A dark shadow has fallen over the twilight
But our lady liberty's torch will always be burning bright.
