Author's Note:
 Story of a Mother, whom her son always believes never tells no lie. Son who waits for his dad each day, mother knows he's never gonna be back (as he's gone on a journey from which he'll probably never return- war, seafaring in the old days etc.). She sings to him each night till he falls asleep waaiting for his dad. Each morning she tells him he did came home when he was asleep and left before he could wake up, she didn't wake him up because she loves him so much, obviously wouldn't disturb his sleep.
