Mom, Mom!
Call the daughter
Mom, Mom!
She can't find an answer
"Mom is half-baked" - someone explains to her -
"She cannot attend to your entreaties, you must be patient"
Mom, Mom!
Shouts her heart,
since she is not allowed to chew
Mom, Mom!
Claims every night
"Mommy is no longer for you" - someone explains -
"You should not be selfish"
Gradually, they exchange roles;
the mother cannot take care, the daughter has to learn to be a mother.
Without deciding, without wishing.
Mom, Mom!
