Pjesma majci (A Song to a mother)

This is Eldin Huseinbegović, who is a few years older than Armin Muzaferija and is somewhat of a mentor to him. He's also an operatic tenor.

At the white mosque
The minaret is broken
At the harem there is the stone
Of my mothers grave

I am standing at your grave
And I'm praying dear Allah
To grant you the beauty of Paradise
My only mother

You've raised you're children well
From our hearts we will aways wish you mercy


It wasn't easy
Life isn't a fairytale
But in everything
You were a good mother

I'm not certain, but it seems likely that the song is a reference to the infamous Ahmići massacre of 1993. Here is a photo of the broken minaret there:
