When I die

     

When I die

(for my children)

 

On the very day I’m dying

Please my children won’t you cry

`Cause my soul it will be flying

Like a white dove high above


And my shadow will protect you

Dividing into pieces-five

On the very day I’m dying

Please my children, won’t you cry


On white wings the dove will find you

Eldest one where you will be

On the very day I’m dying

Desiree don’t cry for me


On the very day I’m dying

Second one don’t cry for me

Softly shadows will protect you

Yasmine just remember me


On the very day I’m dying

I will cross the highest mountains

And will dive the deepest sea-

For to find my youngest daughter

Isabelle don’t cry for me

 

Sascha, on the day I’m dying

I’ll become your guiding star

Leading you through all your sorrows

Crying wouldn’t set me free

On the very day I’m dying

Eldest son don’t cry for me


On the very day I’m dying

Jeffrey please don’t cry for me

I will be your guardian angel

Protecting you where you may be

´cause my love it will be with you

And my soul it will be free


On the very day I’m dying

Children don’t disturb my sleep

Do some singing, laughing, dancing

Live your future don’t look sad


On the very day I’m dying

You should do your daily work

I’ll be there, I will protect you

Crying for me ´s not your job.
