I felt the pain as the tremors took your lives away
The great TV media spread the news as for any hour.
There in your broken homes with your broken people
You stood calm and still, accepting of your Allah's power.

People of Indonesia, we search our minds for the words
But there are none to fill the chasm of your pain
You have lessons to give to us all here on our island
Who have so much, but do not know the gain.

Love and blessings to you my brothers and sisters
Courage and strength to see you through the day
Patience while you quietly await help from the World
Brotherhood and Peace to light and guide you on your way.
