God Protect You, Mother.... - Poem by Mariana Eftimie Kabbout

Can you tell me mother, why the time’s passing?
Where are all the stories from my childhood?
There’s no answer ... just the leaves are rustling
When I get lost on a road between bad and good

The wind whispers softly a memory and longing...
The longing of the days when I was so young
Hold me now, please mother in your arms by singing
The song I love so much... the one you’ve always sung

Strech your hand and turn me back to be your kid
As I am still the same which I was before
Kill the dark shadow! It wants to let me feed
With only bitter loneliness and sadness ...nothing more...

Each day floats in space ... each hour goes by...
I feel myself becoming an invisible stain
I really need you mother, please don’t go to the sky
Don’t let the time to wrap me in sins and so much pain

You know that I’m crying ... I try to hide that
I dont want you to feel that sometimes I’m sad
I wish to have a power for give you all my life
And ask God to protect you for everything is bad

Because you’ve grown me up to be what I’m now
I kiss your hand , my mother and take with me your pain!
I want to stop the time but how to do that? ... how?
Can I be your lovely kid if I’ll be born again?
