lyrics

Mother Don't Cry by Manisha Shahane
Mother don’t cry, for me. Where the sullen breezes blow, where the salty waters flow, into that world I watch her go, hearing her sigh. When she wishes to confide, to escape the world in which she resides, I move her hair gently to the side, uncovering her eyes. Mother don’t cry, for me. On the stove the kettle screams, while in the hall the doorbell rings; but mother goes back into her dreams, closing the door. When I walk into her room, I take a ride on her carousel of gloom, before I fall asleep safely in her womb—for she is no more. Mother don’t! Mother don’t cry, for me.
