An answer to my #poem “Mother”

July 2016

Yesterday, I shared with you one of my most important poems called “Mother” which I wrote in the early 90’s. In 2009 I felt I had moved on a lot and to round up the “Mother” poem I wrote an answer to it:

Here is the English version:

 An answer to „Mother.“

Mother, I found you
in my thoughts
and in my heart
in the pictures
and in the stories
There you are!

Mother, I found you
but still I feel sad
when I see a mother
and you are gone so long
when I see a child
and I am just one inside
but there you are!

Mother, I found you
The helpless search succeeded
Long ago
I lost you and myself
but found ourselves again
There we are!

Mother I found you
in my thoughts
and in my heart
in the pictures
and in the stories
there you are!

I wrote this poem first in English and then translated it into German:

Antwort an “Mutter”

Hab Dich gefunden Mutter!
In meinen Gedanken
und in meinem Herzen
in den Bildern
und den Geschichten!
Da bist Du!

Hab Dich gefunden Mutter!
Noch immer werde ich traurig
wenn ich eine Mutter sehe
und Du bist nicht mehr
wenn ich ein KInd sehe
und ich bin nur noch ein inneres
aber da bist Du!

Hab Dich gefunden Mutter!
Die hilflose Suche war erfolgreich
Vor langer Zeit habe ich Dich verloren
und mit Dir auch mich
und dann
fand ich uns wieder!
Hier sind wir!

Hab Dich gefunden Mutter!
In meinen Gedanken
und in meinem Herzen
in den Bildern
und den Geschichten!
Da bist Du!
