What a touching poem ! The author must have a heart and soul full of love and sympathy. I treasure every words of the poem, but I have obsession with the bird flying in the sky in the video, it may be the symbol of freedom or desire for freedom and happiness. Poor refugees and poor infants and children.
If I had the power, I would stop war,
If I had the power, I would create a world full of sounds of laughter and happiness instead of bombs and bullets.
If I were a bird, I would take all refugees under my wing to fly over the sea safely. It's just a dream, who help me realize this ?

I feel sympathetic to the refugees. Poor them. I believe that there are many people who want to help and share difficulties or sorrow with refugees. Let's do something!!!
