My Praise - Poem by Berhan Mehari

Thank you for your lives
That you have lost just for us
Thank you for the legs,
The arms, ears and eyes
All sacrificed to save us
More “thank you’” from each of us
Wishing our praises
Would bring back your lose.
But we are proud, very proud
For each soul and body part that died
Coz we are walking with your feet
Working with your hands
Listening to the peace
That you have brought to our ears
Your ears; our ears
Thank you for the eyes
For which we are blessed
To look at the bright future
Owning good ones.


Dedicated to all Eritrean Soldiers. ('warsai')
