She came from a land afar

She was born in the land

Where the cedars grow!

She was raised among

The poor and the needy

And never once as a child

Has she owned a radio!

Yes, she uttered her first word

And took her first step

In years of unemployment,

Years of hardship

And began to strike a note

In her earliest youth!

What a privilege among the poor

To hear her voice ring

In every corner of the world!

She sang in her youth!

She sang in the civil war!

Her message was strong and clear

To all who love, cherish,

Fancy and treasure her music!

She brings peace, hope and harmony

To a nation torn apart

By war, hatered and Power

To bretheren killing one anohter

To the poor, her message

Is strong and clear

To her people, she suffered

The hardships of poverty

And the struggles of harshness

And of reality!

And despite her dream

Of passing her values

To the young,

She has surpassed her values

Not only to the young

But also to the old!

Though at birth,

She was given a unique name

She was discovered,

And, due to her voice

Resembling a jewel to many,

She was named for a precious stone!

Of colours of rare beauty

Blue and green,

She became the jewel

Of the hearts

And the blossoming flower

That has bloomed

And has nourished

The nation with Love and dignity!

And despite her loss

And hardship,

She reached out to Arabs

In all corners of the world!

She reached out and cared!

She has carried no grudge,

She does not know

What discrimination means!

And though she continues to sing

Her fans are as many as

The grains of sand still counts!

Her first born now

Works with her!

He writes and composes songs

Which she now sings!

A very talented and gifted

Young star has she raised

Who was raised in Arts

And in music

For this amazing woman

Has never ceased

To make us realize

That all we have

Is one another!
