JOSHI, Prasoon


Maa / Mother

I’ve never told you

How scared I am from the dark

I’ve never told you

How much I care for you

But you know, don’t you, Ma?

You know everything, my Ma.

Don’t leave me alone in crowds

I’ll lose my way back home

Don’t send me to places far away

Where you won’t even remember me

Am I so bad, Ma?

Am I so bad, my Ma?

When sometimes Papa swings me

Too high in the air,

My eyes search for you, hoping

You‘ll come and hold me safe


I don’t tell him

But I get petrified

I don’t let it show

But my heart sinks

You know everything, don’t you, Ma?

You know everything, my Ma

I’ve never told you

How scared I am from the dark

I’ve never told you

How much I care for you

But you know, don’t you, Ma?

You know everything, my Ma.
