Hugging Bears In Arnhem

And in the autumn of 2015
we saw each other in Arnhem,
the Dutch city by the river Rhine
It seemed that the world had gone mad
The war in Syria had just brought
thousands of refugees to my land

As sensitive hearts we were both
deeply affected
And we talked about that
meanwhile our arms
were constantly seeking for each other
Like two hugging bears
we kept giving each other hugs
In a cold Dutch late autumn
We were longing for warmth

In a mad world
in which we both felt lost
and from which we wanted to flee
we hugged each other home that night
As in each other’s arms we found refuge
