Dedicated to Zlata Filipovic, the Anne Frank of Sarajevo.
Today a shell fell in the park
Selma lost a kidney
Nina is dead

I remember Nina in kindergarten
we played in this park
the park where she died

I'll remember her sweetness
I'll remember our park
I'll remember this pointless war

Selma and I, we will remember
The grown-ups may forget
We will remember...war is no joke

Selma is crippled
Nina is dead
Will I live to be thirteen in Sarajevo?
