The Iraqi Angel


She was my idol
And remains
The role model

Here for awhile
Catching up what is new
Systems that have changed
Alongside people
Who see a fraction of what she sees

Spending a fortune on a visa
Granted for the minimum time
Via the neighbours
Who grant the minimum hours

Her tales are beyond my imagination
The experiences incomprehensible

A lifetime spent
Saving thousands of children

Threatened away from home
Out of the car
By chidren

She continues to treat
To teach
To train

Here for thirty days
Speaking for thirty minutes
She tells me
She feels guilty three times

Guilty for the freedom

Freedom from the heat
From the explosions
From the threats

Guilty for leaving them behind

Her fellows
Her charges
“Her” children

If there is any justice in this world
Her name will describe her
May this Iraqi angel
Remain safe from danger

She is an inspiration
And a treasure
I hope she and all those like her will remain safe
