Chilling video of Syrian Teenager Playing Music under Shelling

I hope that my voice can be higher than the symphony of death in Syria .. and you all get my peaceful message !
آمل أن يعلو صوتي على صوت الموت .. لتصل رسالتي …

It’s one of those videos that simply make you wonder, that gives you goosebumps. A couple of days ago, a teenager by the name of Youssef Salem released a video of him playing and singing a song dedicated to his mother while bombs are heard in the background. We don’t know where Youssef Salem is. We don’t even know if his relatives and friends are alive.

With all the bloodshed and horror crippling the wonderful country of Syria, it is truly refreshing to stumble upon something like this. Thank you Redditors on r/Arabs for sharing. The lyrics and translation have been provided by Youssef himself on the original link.

خلك يا يمّا طمنيني .. عن بيي كيف الحال ؟!
Mom.. Please tell me how are you, and how is Dad?
اخواتي كتير اشتقتلون .. رفقاتي دائماً بالبال ..
I miss my Brothers so much. And I keep thinking about my friends.
حكيلي كيفو البيت ؟ اشتقلي لمّا فليت !..
Tell me how is our home? did it miss me when I left.
لحارتنا والجيران وللياسمينة والله حنيت …
To our Street , our neighbors and our Jasmin tree my heart longs.
حكيلي يا أمي نشالله نحلّت الأمور !!.
Tell me mom, is everything okay now? is the conflict over?
ورجعت الدنية أحلا .. الدنية كلها زهور ..
Is the world nice again, are flowers all over again?
حكيلي يا أمي قال الشمس معبية الدنيى
The sun shines on our country, so I’ve heard.
والناس حبت بعضها .. نسيوا الولدنة .!
And People love each other now! they forgot their silliness.
قال سوريا كبروا ولادا .. وهيّة كبرت فيهون
They say that Syria’s Sons now are grown up, and Syria is now bigger and mightier, by their hands!
والعرب رجعوا عاشوا .. وعاشت النخوة فيهون
Arabs lived again, and they reclaimed their morals.
الدنية حنت ع أهلا .. والخير رجع لأهلا
The humans love each other, and now people live in prosperity.
الدنية كلها ألون .. والعيشة صارت أهنى
Colors fill the place, its worth living now!
ودعتك أمي .. لا لا تبكي عليي لا
Mom, I said goodbye to you, Please don’t cry!
صلي مسبحتك للوطن .. وشوفيني نجم بالسما
Pray for Home for country.. I am now a star in the sky. you can see me.
يا نور عيوني لا تبكي .. الليلة عيد
Mom my most beloved one, please don’t cry. Today is a Holiday.
فرحي يا أمي بإبنك ….. ابنك شهيد ..
Mom be proud of me, be happy, cause your son is a martyr.
( الليلة عيد ) …
Today is a Holiday. (EID)
