May 11 '85 is etched upon my mind,
A dream became a nightmare and turned happiness to fear,
The day I left my soul behind,
But could not shed a tear.

The sweet perfume of victory became the stench of death,
And whilst my heart beats soundly I never will forget,
From wisp of smoke to no more breath,
It haunts me ever yet.

I came to praise my heroes out on the field of play,
I came to dance and sing and shout, to hold my head up high,
I came to take the pleasures of the day,
I didn't come to die.

The newsreel of my memory plays a matinee,
A reprise of hurt and sadness, of deep remorse and ire,
That I could not help in any way,
The victims of the fire.

I saw the anguish and the pain pervade the burning stand,
I saw the reaper laughing beneath the crimson sky,
And through the flames that panic fanned,
I saw an angel cry.

Rest in peace you Bantams, rest in peace you Imps,
Two cities joined in pain and grief, your memory ever cherished,
The game you loved is different since,
The fateful day it perished.

We grieve as one these years gone by and though it can be fraught,
We'll close our eyes and bow our heads, so glad to be alive,
We're all alone with just one thought,
May 11 '85

IMO it hits home more when there are people in the lists with the same surname as you :( makes you realise it isnt just a register, each one was a living person :(

Horrendous.
Reading that list it looks like some poor women lost their husbands and children all in one day. Absolutely horrendous.
#14
I went to school not far from Valley Parade and it seemed that everyone new someone killed or injured that day. I was 14 at the time and will never forget the scenes of that day. Such a tragedy. Such a sad loss of life.
RIP
#15
Stand at Sincil Bank is named after the two Lincoln City fans who died at Bradford.
William Stacey and William James West

The Stacey West Stand.

This hit's home more than the Hillsbrough disaster... can't put into word's why - but it does.
#17
RIP to all that lost their lives at Valley Parade that day - I was in Bradford when it happened and saw the smoke, not realising what was happening
