You are the star in my sky
In the blue sky

You gave me courage to fly
When the Taliban broke my wings
And broke my heart

You were there to guide me
You told me,
Try! If you try, you can fly!

When they left me along the highways
You took my hand
And changed my life

You showed me
The meaning of being a brave lady

You taught me
How to work for liberty
How to be human and support other humans

You gave me freedom from darkness
You are a candle
Your imprint on my life is like a fairy’s
