Living under my Grandmother's Aureole

It was her,

Her,

Whom I've known

All my life;

 

The one

Who:

Inspired me,

Changed me;

 

Hearing her

Story,

Escaping from the

Kracnaya country;

 

Coming here

Safe:

Achieving,

Reaching her dreams

 

My role model:

Perfect;

A sad past,

A sad death;

 

But she

Made 

Me who I am,

In present day;

 

It was she

Who

Never saw me

On the stage;

 

But I know,

Everytime

I step out,

She is in the front row,

Only for me.
