I remember that terrible event that happened all those years ago. I could easily imagine someone, who has been through that horrible event, writing something like this. I am sorry for everyone who had to face it. I can't even imagine how it must've felt.
You can write very well. Keep it up!
The poem as a whole is pretty, but 1st line bothers me. "In it's velvety" should be "in its' velvety". Ask from someone native speaker (I am not such) why. I just tell what I've learned. But you will tame this. I am sure about that. You're able to make beautiful picture.
