A shattered mirror,
Crib in the corner,
Mother walking through the rubble,
A child terrified.
The price of war,
When will we learn?
A child with blood covering them
Like a blanket of death.
The innocent victims of greed.
Power hungry fools!
Rage over powering my soul
How dare they.
They had no right
Where was truth?
You held me in your dreams at night
When I was afraid you soothed me.
You came to my mind every time I was scared
Like an angel.
I always felt your Love.
You want me to grow up and tell what happened.
They should never forget what they did.
You touched me with your love.
I am with you.
You crawl into my spirit.
Your beauty caresses my passion,
When you hold me in your arms.
I am filled with tears of joy.
You are my courage,
Filling my days with wonder.
I can find my way through the day knowing
When I sleep you will be there.
In my dreams,
I know you.
I know her,
She reaches into the sacred depths of my thoughts.
Her mind is one with mine.
She is a child of my soul.
I can reach into her thoughts.
She into mine,
Over the distance of time and space.
Her sorrow reaches my heart.
Her being fills the most precious part of me.
Tears flowing like the memories of war.
A tidal wave of excruciating pain.
Witness of unfathomable terror,
Haunting my memory.
She will carry the past for a lifetime,
Never faltering in her memories.
She is a daughter of the universe,
I carry her into my dreams.
Unforgettable for Eternity.
She is only 8 years old.
