Cries of Her Child

Daughter’s voice rings out, penetrates the night
Mommy hurries to her room hoping all is right
Drowsily stumbling down the hall
Anxious to soothe the heartrending call

Sleeping peacefully, tucked in his bed
She finds not her daughter, but her son instead
Tears well up, tender heart rips
Soft muffled sobs escape parted lips

Child of Ukraine, many miles away
She yearns for the day you come home to stay
Soon she will travel, Daughter to find
Visions of you resonate through her mind

Sleep tight sweet daughter, clothed in prayer
Mommy is coming, do not despair
Tender arms to hold you, melodic voice to sing
Two hearts to merge, what joy you’ll bring
