Only A Child

She had liquid brown eyes
Deep pools in the yellow sun
And little rosy lips
More beautiful there were none

She fled with her mother
Beneath the scorching desert sky
Once clung fast to her mother
Now alone she did cry

Where are you now mother
It's too bright for me to see
Where are you now mother
From what danger did we flee

I listen for your voice mother
What what what is it
Do hear your voice mother, or
Is the wind's cry so fierce

You're lying in the sand mother
Now I can plainly see
You're lying in the sand mother
Oh please get up for me

I see your hand in the dust mother
I'm tugging on your sleeve
Move your gentle hand mother
Let's go it's time to leave

You are too quiet mother
Are you angry with me
I am so afraid mother
Don't be angry with me

A fly is on your face mother
Why is the ground so red?
A black fly is on your face mother
Why is the ground so red?
