Mother, when I go away

Mother, when I go away
Being angry with You,
Without telling You,
Will You look for me?
I know I shall tremble in fear
If I look behind and see
That You are running after me
To catch me with Your Heart’s
Endless Affection-Compassion-Love.
If you call me, I know, Mother,
I shall have to surrender to You.
If You smile, Your Smile will compel me
To return to You.
