At the dawn of his life
He found himself alone
With no one by his side
He tried to live just and right

He took one step at a time
Still fell down on his knees
He cried
For he heard darkness call
But no one to see at all

He prayed
Beyond life
Beyond Death
The only place he had felt safe

A presence drew near
A deity he did not see nor hear
What are you?
He said with a trembling voice
No answer came
But where the candles
Drew a shadow on the ground
A warmth grew
As the shadow
Swallowed his own
Like a predator
Devouring his prey
Panic struck
It was in this moment
In utter despair

Dear mother
Is it all on me?
Dear mother
Won’t you answer me?
Dear mother
Please tell me what to do?
Dear mother
Won’t you answer...

All the deliverance I had
Surrender into your heart
And let me near beside you
All the deliverance I had
When life was gone

Won’t you lay down beside
Won’t you lay down beside
My cold and lonely heart?

Dear mother...
