Oh Palestine. Forgive me
for I have allowed this to occur.
My brothers and sisters are divided;
many not realizing sooner
that we have wronged you.
Oh Gaza. Know my regret
for having not done more
for you and your people.
We let them bomb you and make your soil sore
With agony and destruction.
Oh people of Palestine. Know my sorrow.
We should have come to your door;
we should have fought harder by your side.
Palestine, but you know,
We did nothing.
Oh sisters of Palestine,
let me mourn with you
for the brothers and fathers
and husbands you have lost
and all the others
that you have loved.
Oh brothers of Palestine,
I look up to you
for your bravery;
the same bravery you pass on to your sisters and wives
and make the rest of the world look cowardly.
