Mother and the Mabon

 

Falsely accused of killing her son, Rhiannon is punished for years. Sentenced to stand before the castle gates, to tell her story to every visitor, then to go down on all fours and to offer to carry each one into the castle on her back. But then, reunited with her long-lost son. This is their song.

 

Pryderi

Is this really true?

Can it be? Can it be?

I see in your eyes,

Joy and sadness,

Mother I never knew,

Now I see, now I see,

The torment and lies,

But now this madness.

Is over, our life has begun,

Hold me, your lost child, your son.

Rhiannon

Is this really true?

Can it be? Can it be?

All those years ago,

Stolen from me,

Somehow I always knew,

Now I see, now I see,

The boy I’ll come to know,

Stands before me,

Lost years oh they can’t be undone.

Let me hold you, my lost child, my son.

Pryderi and Rhiannon

Is this really true?

Can it be? Can it be?

I’ll never let you go,

I feel you breathing,

Yes it’s really you,

And can you see, can you see,

A mare and her foal,

Wild and running,

Through green fields,

Bathed and warmed by the sun,

Mother and the Mabon as one.
