Don’t cry now Ummi, don’t cry now, rest now
It’s over Ummi, no more pain, no more
suffering, no more grief.
I see the fear in your eyes Ummi, thinking
what’s going to become of me,
Don’t you worry about me though Ummi
because Allah will watch over me.
I was going to build you a proper home where
we would live happily,
I was going to take you to Hajj Ummi, when
standing on my own two feet.
Those dreams will stay dreams now, never
becoming a reality,
My heart is breaking apart now Ummi with the
thought of you leaving me.
O’ my beloved Ummi, what will I do without
My world is upside down, I’m in pain! Turmoil!
Our lives mean nothing to them Ummi! They
hate us passionately!
But why does no one stop them Ummi? No one
listens to our plea!
Why does no one help us Ummi? Why is
Don’t they know we live in terror every day
from this enemy?
I get lost in my thoughts occasionally, I’ve
been thinking a lot lately,
I don’t know what we did to them, why do they
want to see us bleed?
The day we wait so long for; but it seems that
time has ceased,
When will this bloodshed stop? When will we
live again in peace?
But our blood is not wasted Ummi -remember
for this we die as Shaheed,
They may take our lives Ummi, but our souls
are forever free!
So they can beat me, starve me, cut me until
my body bleeds,
My soul will never submit to them, I’m a slave
to the Almighty…
