Where, child?
Where have you gone?
To a place far from home, mother.

Why, child?
Why have you gone?
Because I had to, mother.

When, child?
When will you be home?
I won’t, mother.

Then when will I, child?
When will I be able to come?
Whenever you wish, mother.

But how, child?
How will I be able to visit you?
The same way father has, mother.

Father, child?
Is father there with you?
He is, mother.

How is he, child?
How is he doing there?
He is so happy to be with me but he misses you, mother.

And, child?
Yes, mother?

Will I be able to see you smile again?
You will, mother.
Will I be able to hold you again?
You will, mother.
Will we be together again?
We will, mother.

I will see you soon, my child.
Farewell, mother.
