Please father
don't send me away.
Please mother
don't give me away.
Please sister
don't let them take me away.
Please brother
please let me stay.
Let me stay here with all of you
that I love.

Because the world is too beautiful and weary
and it is cruel.
And it wants
to take me to pieces.

And if I come back
I'd be lost.
All that you have made of me
would be withered and undone.
