Eritrea

Hide little brother hide

They have come to get you again

Please hold your breath… don’t make any noise

Kassala

Run little brother run

They want to sell you and sell you kidneys

Please don’t stop to breath… run don’t halt your pace

Lampedusa

Swim little brother swim

They refuse to come rescue you

Take a deep breath and swim…there is no time to think

Eritrea

Fly little brother fly

To the clouds above the sea

To the mountains beyond the borders

To the streets you knew like the back of your hand

Then finally to the home whose very life and light you were

To the side of your forlorn mother who lived for you and will die with you

Rest

Dear brother

Now rest in peace

There is no need to run

And there is nowhere to hide

It really is the end… it is all over now

Rest dear little brother rest in eternal Peace
