RIP Aylan Kurdi

RIP Aylan Kurdi

(a young Syrian boy, lost in the war)

 Aylan Kurdi


My soul seeks the shore; dad said it’s nearby;


My mama is fast asleep; big brother has just waved goodbye;


I hate this misty night; I can’t hear bombs for good, they make me petrified;


The sand was warm at home; the water is cold and won’t dry;


The boat is rocking and I can’t sleep, seems it’s time for me to say good-bye;


Sir your beard is so long and it’s so white; have we reached the shore cause it’s so bright;


My father said shore is lovely and it’s nearby;


I like it here, hope I won’t cry.
