I find it hard to understand how you managed

when you lost your land

The empty houses and crumbled wells

Are signs of misery which you felt

The kilos walked

The family lost

Broken olive trees scattered

You began to wonder what really mattered

But amidst all you encountered

Your Sabr was oh so powerful

My dear Sedo

You have sacrificed and have suffered

Yet, your reward is immense

Just imagine in Jannah

The surroundings around you

Your land will come alive again

And You my beloved Sedo

Will find a new everlasting home
