One machine moves blood,
Another pumps some air;
I find it so comfusing,
These kids don’t seem to care.
The children seem not frightened,
The appear to be so brave;
The parents are the weak,
They pray their souls to save.
Naive at facing death,
Not knowing how to die;
Everyone so frantic,
As the child says goodbye.
Their life seems way to short,
But that just is not true;
They are playing up in heaven,
Waiting for me and you.
