#BringBackOurBoys (Madeleine, Paris 8eme)

Post written on “Bo’i” from Idan Raichel

Today I wish…

A month ago, I wrote a post for the girls kidnapped in Nigeria. A month ago I wrote about freedom I have in this part of the world. A month ago, I did not think I would think differently.

This week-end, I saw the names of 3 boys kidnapped simply because they are who they are. Four days ago, I did not know they existed, I did not know their names. I wish it had stayed this way.

Today I just wish Arik Einstein’s song written for Guilad Shalit will be used again for ALL of them. Today I wish we will not wait 5 years…

“Now that you are here”

And we will never forget
The sweet moment
That we heard it was over
And that you are coming
To be near

A smile of innocent children
Took over our faces
The first shudder
After five years

Now that you are here
Take it slow
Don’t run fast
Remember, forget, laugh
You’ll always be a hero
You are allowed to cry
Its not simple at all
To forgive fate

But now that you are here
You can have love
You can have a strong embrace
You can breathe deep

For five years the heart ticked
A clock ticking pain
The fear that you would not return
Killed our heart

We love
To hear your name
Now you are back
And there is a great love here

Take what is possible
Don’t dare to be shy
We have waited just to give you
Everything you ask for

But now that you are here….
Oh, how wonderful it is that you are here
