A lullaby to the mother sung by a son
(Times have changed. There seems to be no need to sing a Lullaby(Thalattu ) for babies any more . The baby likes TV music better and also the mother of babies do not have time for this non sense.But the elders in the house do not get sleep due to various reasons . I imagined the son of a mother sitting by her side and l singing in a lovely affectionate voice a lullaby to make her sleep No I am not joking .How I wish it happens?)
Oh my mother, oh my treasure,
Oh my first teacher , Thalelo (Please sleep)
Did my Father shout at you dearest one,
You know that it is habit, please sleep,
Did you get tired by ceaseless work ,
Throughout the day, Please close you eyes and sleep,
Did not the maid servant come today ,
And made you work, Take rest now and please sleep.
Did your children demand , this and that,
And made you work hard , It is time to sleep, please sleep.
Did you want a new Sari to wear tomorrow,
I will take you to the shop tomorrow , please sleep,
Did my wife trouble you and made your day bad,
I will chide her soon, You please sleep.
Did my younger brother and sister had,
Too much work and you had do it, Please sleep.
Were you not able to take your after noon nap,
Do not bother , now you please sleep.
