Connecting the chain of generations

Little feet had walked here –
had walked then and walk today.
Little feet that from an enemy ran away.
They did not dare to dream –
that a day would come when again,
the feet of a child
would walk on this very mountain.

The great-grandson of the fleeting, haunted child.
That has since returned to his country.
Alive and well and raising children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
And they all returned there –
with courage , bravery and hope
to that very same mountain.
