Custous Angelus

(Before AD / Old Earth)

I don't want to leave

Ah mother mother my beloved mother
Why is it that I must leave
why is it that I must go away
from you from family and from the land that I called home
I have grown
I have grown enough to take on the challenges
or I thought I was ready to take on the challenges
alas I'm not strong enough
not old enough to leave your side
Ah mother mother my beloved mother
I'm taken by fear
I feel so small in front of the new world
Tears are welling up in my eyes
Ah mother mother my most beloved mother
Will I be truly on my own when I leave you
you with your fragile hand have cleared my path
knowing that you are ill now it makes me unwilling to leave
Ah mother mother my most beloved mother
Is the fear in my heart from the new world that I do not know
or from the thought that I won't be seeing you
I just want to go back
go back in time when you were strong
and protected me from the world
but alas now I must learn to face the world
Ah mother mother my most honorable mother
I know with my every fall you will cry
I know that you will cheer me on from behind
but mother mother I'm afraid
I feel like a little child
barely old enough but still deadly afraid
Ah mother mother must I leave your side
I know you cannot clear path for me anymore
and I must undertake the journey from here
Ah mother mother promise me
promise me that when I come back
well and strong
all grown and confident
you will greet me and still hold my hands.
Ah mother mother my most beloved mother
I hate to leave

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
