2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Twenty three years of scandalous lies, at last the truth is out
Liverpool people now you all walk tall and proudly sing and shout
“Justice” at last for the 96 angels after a staggering 23 years
The Mersey could have overflowed with families mourning tears!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Sun, Mckenzie, South Yorkshire Police should hang their heads in shame
When all along they knew from the start “Our loyal fans were not to blame”
Covering lies, headlines of filth, pointing the finger, such anguish and hurt inside
At last our 96 loved one’s can now rest in peace, you’ve made Merseyside shine with pride

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We must also remember the people and fans who were at that tragic game
My husband was there and since that very day he has never been the same
Many times I’ve sat and hugged him has he’s laid in my arms and cried
The Pain, Fear, hurt, and lies of ‘89’ are rooted deep inside

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 No matter how much he and others try, they will never forget that day
Many people, without naming names, have one big price to pay
The 96 are shining down upon us, from their heavenly Golden Sky
People from all around the world always ask the question ‘why?’

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Why 96 loved one’s were taken on that day, fond memories of them embedded in our mind
A disaster that should have never occurred but sadly did due to errors of mankind
My heart goes out to all who’ve suffered in the City of Liverpool, a place of love and pride
To all the 96 loved one’s and our loyal supporters too, our joy and smiles we cannot hide

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The Families of the 96 will be in our prayers till the end of time, now Justice is set in stone
I dedicate this to my husband Martin who is well and truly scarred, “you’ll never walk alone”
I’ll hold your hand every step of the way from now to eternity, and help you face past fears
The Truth is out at last, I know that makes you happy Mart as I wipe away your tears!

I wrote this poem for my husband Martin, and all the proud people of Liverpool, who have suffered for years!! My heart goes out to them all….”YNWA”

Editor’s note:

Tracey, thanks for sharing that with us.
Martin is lucky to have such a caring shoulder to cry on.

The family of football will always recall that day with utter regret and disbelief.
