I twist and turn my thoughts around
To escape the growing gloom
To think that there may be a future
That isn’t like the drawing doom

I smile to hide my searing pain
Fake laughs can create true joy
Yet my heart never lies at ease
Keeps worrying about my girl and boy

What’s in store? I do not know
What’s in sight? I cannot see
What’s that sound? I cannot hear
Only feel this monstrosity

I never folded hands for myself
Never asked for happiness
I am old and weak but willing
To pass not forward this distress

All I ask — I ask now of you
Bless not my kids with the greatest joy
Keep them safe from Sorrow’s clutches
My darling girl and my dear boy
