Don’t leave me
Can’t you see I need you?
To veil my eyes from seeing my sister’s blood
run from her breathless body
To brush my hair with your soothing hand
The one that tells me I will still hear your voice
as I fade to sleep
Wake up, quit your playing
And tell me every explosion
Every crack of a bullet
Are just the fireworks celebrating our struggle
Syria will be FREE!
Shout it once more for me
Or at least whisper it in my ear
And I will whisper it to my sister’s
And she would surely smile once more!
