Mami?!

Posted: May 24, 2012 in Poetic Screed, Spanish Poetry

Mami!  mami! cries the child

En donde estas?! 

No te puedo ver, ni puedo hablar contigo

No me oyes?

The voice cracks at the fault lines of fear

And here and there a tear may fall, but never more than one

She used to say:  No llores mijito,  No seàs lloròn

Lagrimas no cambian las cosas

Mami?! mami?!

En donde estas?!

Perdoname, estoy llorando

Lloro proque cosas cambian sin duda

Y sin duda no regresàs

Mami?! mami?!

No me oyes?!
