Tre madri (English translation)
"Tito, you are not son of God,
but there's who dies saying goddbye to you".
"Dimaco, you ignore who your father was,
yet more than you your mother dies".
"You cry with too many tears, Mary,
only the image of an agony:
you know that to life, on the third day,
your son will come back:
leave us cry, a bit louder,
the ones who will not return from death anymore".
"I cry for what was taken from me of him,
his slim arms, his forehead, his face,
every life of his that is still living,
I see it turning off hour by hour.
Son in my blood, son in my heart,
and who calls you - Our Lord-,
in the weariness of your smile
is looking for a bit of Paradise.
To me you are son, dying life,
this womb of mine brought you blind,
like in my womb, now on the cross,
this voice of mine is calling you love.
Hadn't you been son of God
I'd have you still as my son"
