Chinese Earthquake Poem

Please Hold Onto Mother's Hand, My Child.

Come, my child, hold onto Mother's hand quickly

The road to Paradise is too dark; Let your Mother show the way

I am afraid, Mama - Paradise road is too dark

When the walls collapsed, the sun went out

I will never again see your gentle eyes

Go ahead now, my child

The road ahead of you will not be too sad

But you must always remember my face

So we may live together forever in the next life

Mama, do not worry

The road to Paradise is crowded now

There are many classmates and friends

Mama, Mama, please don't cry

Tears cannot light the road ahead

Let us be on our way

I will always remember your face

In the next life we will be together again

I promise

From an aricle in the San Gabriel Tribune about PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) among people involved with the earthquake.
