Abandonment

Oil painting by Donald Zolan

Mama don’t go, please don’t go

Hear my pleas, I am but a child

I need your love, or I’ll go wild

I need your warm embrace, oh

 

Warm kisses, safe hugs, my shoe

You are the most beautiful mama

When I grow up I’ll marry mama

Don’t leave me be, take me too

 

For I want you, only you, just you

Nights are cold I am scared stiff

Bogeyman comes, big mastiff

Little teddy wants mama too

 

I promise I’ll be good forever

I’ll eat my greens and jelly beans

I won’t wet the bed, no ice-cream

Say you won’t go, say never

 

There’s nobody to pat me to sleep

Nobody there to hug me at night

Nobody there when I’m in fright

Nobody’s love for me to keep

 

Mama please say you love me

Mama please say you will stay

Today and every other day

Mama see me, please look at me

 

I am pleading, on my knees

Mama don’t go, please don’t go

I can’t live a day without you, no

Hear my pleas, please hear my pleas
