Yes I’m young,
But when I sigh,
It’s filled with no
Less sorrows

Then the sigh of
A man who
Lived through the
Holocaust,
Watching his family,
And countless others,
Die.

Yes I’m young,
But when I sigh,
It’s filled with no
Less sorrows

Then the sigh of
A woman who
Lost her father,
Her husband,
And her only son,
To war.

Yes I’m young,
But when I sigh,
It’s filled with no
Less sorrows

Than yours.
