A Moment Of Silence - Poem by Lilit Movsisyan

What a beautiful day it was when everyone was called
There was no one that wasnt going to fight
It was one moment in our lifes that we had to defend our prides
But look-
But look at the sky now its dark
Its dark 'cause the smoke has filled its poison
It has destroyed the hearts of those men
But only now that we all stand and remember them
Please! Please! Lets take this moment of silence
Lets remember those men who have died to defend our land and our Prides
Lets kneel to the ground and praise those men who have died
There has been so much changes since our fathers and brothers have fought.
Look! Look at our mothers and sisters who have waited for their loved once to come back.
But instead some of us have cried!
Now please.....lets take a moment of silence for those mothers who have been strong. That seen their husbands and their sons not come back.
Its so painful to see mothers eyes who has gave birth a child to fight.
Look at mothers eyes and tell me what has she done to be punished just like that?
She has been wounded ever since that time when she heard her husband will not come back!
She shed tears at night for her lonely and silent heart.
That was Empty! Empty!
Then tell me what kind of destiny did she have that she even lost her own son at the battle one time?
Now our poor mother has left this world with peace on her face.
Now I know she will be free once again.
She had so much grief written on her palms.
Now please! Lets take this moment of silence to kneel on the ground and praise those men who have died. Lets kneel on the ground again and this time to praise for those mothers who had pain.
Moment of Silence-
