Sounds of joy and words of love,
fill the space around me,
All I see are genuine smiles,
I feel at peace, I feel free.
There is nothing that could change this,
nothing more that I want,
Forever I want to remember,
this innocent jubilant chant.
Like Zues’ thunder it came,
clattering down like it is raining fire,
In a moment everything changed,
The impact vanquished all my desires.
From my sight disappeared those I cherish,
but I could well hear them wail,
I got the strength to pick myself up,
just to see my mother’s face grow pale.
As my strength caved, I could not fight it all,
I fell as I had nothing to hold,
Though it is raining fire from the sky,
It feels dark, I feel cold.
