A Ukrainian Child Hides From a Russian Soldier

A Ukrainian Child Hides From a Russian Soldier

If I keep still and quiet
Maybe he won't know I'm here

Mama and Papa are gone
There's nobody left but me

This is the only home
I've ever known
A place where I could run free
No worries, day or night

This beautiful land
Where men have struggled and died
To build a better life
For all Ukrainians

Must it end this way?
My family and friends
The people I love
Our lives shattered
Our hopes and dreams crushed

A little bird
Lands on a tree branch near me
She knows no boundaries, no restrictions
Free to go wherever she pleases

I wish I could fly away like her
