A Memory of the Holocaust

A memory of a song
I sang throughout my life
A song of joys and sorrows
Of the importance of human life

A memory of a childhood
So short in being sweet
Of a time when I was taken
My family and me

A memory of a place
Where some people were so cruel
To those who were a little different
To those like me and you

A memory of a question
Placed inside a guards head
One that would mean the difference
If I lived or if I was dead

A memory of a fear
That many I knew shared
The fear of not surviving
Even if we weren’t scared

A memory of a taking
Of my friends and fellow Jews
Of what was to become of them
If I only knew

A memory of a song
Sung by all my friends
To keep hope and faith inside their hearts
For the people I would meet again
