Down pillow beneath my head
Here the Germans come they said
All security is gone
Take your things and move along
The Star of David this will show
That we're all just Jews you know
Only worthy for their cause
Keep on moving do not pause
Marching marching four by four
Feeling I can't march no more
Friends they held me saved my life
They said they'e help me hold on tight
Each day would pass with fear inside
Wondering if today we'd die
By gas or execution style
Upon their face they'd wear a smile
So we held on to our dreams
Ballroom dancing fruits with cream
Sounds too simple here today
I could not loose my mind that day

Ladykimberly - Very Good
I am so glad to see you posting poetry here. I have been lucky enough to read many of your lyrics also. I hope - in time - you will post them as well as your children's books!

I enjoyed the visuals this poem gave me - very Schlindler's list. I think also that the holocaust is something I do not ponder often enough. My uncle was a WWII POW, but I don't know well-enough what that means exactly; what it means in terms of his personal experience.

I see him driving in town now and then. I wave.

Thanks for posting this thought provoking piece.
