Goodbye Goodbye oh Mother. Goodbye because you went far away. Who knows if I’ll see you again. Here where you left me  I know that I am waiting. Where you have left me. Goodbye Goodbye oh Mother. Goodbye because you went far away. If one day you want to return to search for me perhaps. Here I am waiting in the place. Where you left me.

I wrote two books about the migrant experience, and have talked to mothers who had to leave their children behind. It is so devastating to both the child and the mother. I thought this child might benefit from hearing what his/her mother is probably thinking. We will submit another version soon - in Spanish.

I do not speak Spanish so I hope that I do not sound to funny. Thanks for letting me do this. Billy
