Buried Alive:

Mass Killings of POWs and Civilians by Tito's Partisans

 

In a few hours my life will end. Oh dear God! You know I die innocent, just like your Son.

My child, my gentle angel. How I long to see your face, graced with a smile, cheering me up and taking all the worries away! Oh my child, my gentle white flower! I will not live to see your tiny white hands. I will not live to feel your tender embrace. I will never pull you close to my bosom, let you feel my heartbeat, even though you are so ...close, so very close to me. Never, my sweet child! Down yonder, in the dark forest’s grasp, we'll rest. Spring flowers will adorn
our eternal home.

My lips will never sing a soft lullaby to you. I will be your cradle, your bed, but oh so cold and hard. The branches above us will croon you a lullaby. Sleep now, sleep tight my child! You are close to my loving, ever loving heart. I love you dearly but I'm helpless, I cannot save you from death, my child, I cannot save you. You just sleep tight now my angel! You cannot know the horror of what awaits us. We'll die together, Ill be in your thoughts when the moment comes, to soothe you. And then our pain and suffering will cease, our struggle will end. We'll journey to God together. When I felt you for the first time I sensed your unease. I dreamed of bringing you into God's presence for the first time, I dreamed of your tiny head wet with baptismal water. But, now, sweet child, it will be my blood pouring down your forehead. With your mother's blood, pulsing with love, you'll be baptized. I watched you bow before Christ in the Eucharist. My body will be a ciborium soon. You, my child, will be a host in it. From the ciborium a loving hand will pluck you and embed you in its sacred heart…

Then, my child, I will see you for the first time. My gentle angel! There I will see your face. There, you'll see your mother for the first time and learn your first word:

'Mama!'
