I Am Waiting for you Mama
I am looking impatiently all around me
And I am saying to my heart,
“She will come; she will come.”
But with every new day
My hope from the past night dies.
She remained on the other side
Where people are not people anymore.
Where every day there is suffering
And everyone is threatened with extinction.
I go to sleep at night in my tears
Making a list of old memories in my head.
I came here to save my life
And I left my mother to suffer there.
Still my mother’s time will come
When all people will stand together
Then happy, I will go home to Doboj
And fall upon her beloved breast.
