Irena Sendler

Tony Harris
Language: English




She carried children 
Through crosses from stars 

And she smuggled children 
By courage and heart 

She was my savior 
Lied for me 
I’d lie for her 

She walked where others feared to go 
Saved their lives 
Risking he-r own 

She hid our souls in 
Jars neath the apple tree 

She lived her life so truthfully 
She risked her life for 
Love of humanity 

She was Irena 
Calm and serene 
She was Jolanta 
Through rubble and screams 

Asked by our loved ones 
If they go 
Will they survive? 

She could say only what she knew 
If they stay 
They will surely die 

She hid our souls in 
Jars neath the apple tree 

She showed her love so truthfully 
She risked her life for 
Love of humanity 

She risked her life for 
Love of humanity 

She often said that she could have done more 
But who could give more 
Has more 
To sacrifice ?
