Taliban attack
Ahmed dear, are you there?
Don't stand so far...come near

Let me kiss you one last time
pack your bags and let you go!

I will miss those feet that ran around
those little hands, my world new-found

Stay well my child in the heavenly abode
Let the wounds be gone with immense love showered

Let me kiss you for one last time
pack your bags and let you go!

The roses in the garden now cover your shroud
And remember that you made us proud

Take the seeds of love and peace with you
Not the bullets, those were just a few

Let me kiss you for one last time
pack your bags and let you go!

Bear no hatred, no fear
The world's not that bad, my dear

But shed a tear for the 'Black Boots'
that came rattling and shattering your hoods

Tell Allah what they did and ask for his pity
Let them have some peace and mercy

So, let me kiss you goodbye, my son
for a journey that has no return
