I see the children come and go
And it breaks my heart just to know
That where they go they will die
In the ground forever they will lie

It reeks of death all around
It’s probably the corpses in the ground
I know my day is almost here
But death I do not fear

All around children are sad
For they miss their parents and are mad
We sit in the basement, damp and stark
We’re left alone, to suffer in the dark

Hidden children we must stay
Or in the ground we will lay
Hidden children we must stay
Or in the ground we will lay

This poem is about the hidden children in teh Holocaust. They hid in peoples houses, basements, attics, barns, or anywhere children could hide.
