Ukraine - My Dear Mother

My Dear Mother!

Lyrics and music written by Oxana Senkiv, a Canadian composer of Ukrainian origin from Montreal diaspora who wrote it as a special gift for our kids and Schoolovision 2018.

When I am at school and
when I am at home
I feel her invisible presence:
My mother surrounds me
with goodness and warmth,
She is my angel and goddess.

We strongly believe that our mothers are our guardian angels who protect us, help us, love us. Since times immemorial mother has always played an important role in the life of every Ukrainian child giving her wisdom and strength to the next generations.

My dear Mother, my guardian angel,
Please take me under your wings!
My dear Mother, with open heart
Forgive me my innocent sins.

In this song we are promoting peace, understanding, love, beauty of our land in spring and emotional mother-daughter relationships, the strongest of all parent-child bonds. The participants are wearing traditional  ancient Ukrainian outfit, typical for the central part of Ukraine.

You teach me to be nice and kind to all,
You want me to be strong and caring.
You teach me to pray and love our world,
And always be helpful and friendly!

Please, do enjoy our entry! Good luck to all the Schoolovisionals!!!
Schoolovision forever!🙂
