Where are you mother

Where are you mother
i remember your face
was light in completion
and so beautiful
You and father
used to dance around 
me making me feel happy
but now everything is changed

Where are you mother
i last saw you when
you told me to hide
in the closet and i still
remember your voice
shouting out so loud
and after that i heard loud
bangs and i waited for you
to come and take me
but you did no come
and instead father searched 
for me until he found me 
and took me to grandmother's

Where are you mother 
Please come back
Father is crying
Please come back
I miss you mother
and i feel your hands around me
but i don't see you
i dreamed about you
but when i woke up
i saw no one 
but clothes in the closet

Where ever you are please come back
So many people are coming to see us
telling father how they are sorry for our loss
but i believe you are not lost
because i still remember the days
we went to search for firewood in long
distanced places 
we would go where we did not know
but we never got lost
I know you are near
Please come back

Everyone is looking at this big box
that has your picture in your favourite
frame and whenever the box is opened
so many people start crying 
i wonder what's in the box
If you were here you would allow me to
see what is inside

Please mother come back very soon
I will be waiting for you
