Last Night My Country Clapped Their Hands

Advertisements

Last night my country clapped their hands

They stood out in the street

Or opened a window up high

To show the heroes

We are here.

….

Last night my country clapped their hands

They came out from their houses

And joined each other

Together even though

We are apart.

I cried when people clapped their hands

Even though we clap hands often

Because this is not a show

Or a concert

This is war.

Last night my children clapped their hands

They didn’t really know why

But one day they will look back

And remember

They were there.

For everyone who clapped their hands

I want to say I’m proud of you

For doing your part

In your homes

We are here.
