THE WALL
(by Rachel Williams)

We looked at the wall
My mother and me
We looked at the wall
It was time to see

It was time to look
It was time to learn
It was time to feel
It was time to yearn

We walked to the wall
We searched high and low
We walked to the wall
My mom wanted to go

It was time to walk slow
It was time to be strong
It was time to hold hands
Oh the time took so long

We both touched the wall
The sun shone from up high
We both touched the wall

My mom started to cry

It was time to touch
It was time to cry
It was time to pray
It was time to ask "Why?"

We cried at the wall
Daughter and mother
We cried at the wall
For my uncle, her brother

There are so many names
Carved into the stone
So many lost loved ones

Who have never been known

The wall has a lesson
That it teaches with tears
Live together in peace
For the rest of our years
