    You Mary, you gave birth to God,
    placed him in  the poor manger,
    probably your heart felt the pain
    that like all other children, he
    did not have his own crib,
    you know, he loved the manger more,
    so small and helpless,
    but he was peaceful and secure, 
    because you and Joseph 
    have been watching over Him.

    How you  sung to him quietly,
    how  you hugged him, 
    when you would lift him on your knees, 
    and gently rocking him,
    or when you would tell him those beautiful stories
    about the old history, of Jewish,
    and  when you would hold him in your tender hands,
    and kissed him, often you would shed a tear, 
    tear of happiness.

    How wonderful are those early days for mothers, 
    how wonderful it is to have a baby, 
    those little hands that hug you 
    and big eyes that look at you,
    let the universe pass, let the world end, 
    but mother does not see nothing but her child.

    And there is something else 
    I would like to know,
    Mother how is it up there among the stars,
    how are you venerated by seraphims and cherubims
    what is the Haven like when the angel's song arises, 
    and you shepherds tell me,
    what kind of voice do angels have,
    I would like to know that
    and I would like to know how it is to be close to God,
    how  it is when you look at Him in the face,
    how is it when His light illuminates you?

    And a few more things I would like to know,
    can I up there hear the song of the canary,
    or happy swallows
    as in the summer days in my homeland,
    are up there as here
    beautiful meadows and flowers,
    are there any clear streams and high waterfalls,
    I know I'm curious but I would like to know,
    if I make it to you one day, 
    and you know I'll do my best to;
    Will I ever see that joy of Bethlehem?
    Will I be able to see little Christ?
    And what was it like in the holy night?
    You know, that's what I would like to know. 

    I know you hear me, Mother,
    maybe your smile was elicited by
    my child's desire,
    but we were all childrens once,
    we were all  joys of our mothers,
    although I'm not a kid anymore, 
    I would be sorry
    to extinguish  my childish dreams in me, 
    let it remain some of the joys of childhood,
    let it remain some memory of smallness,
    let it remain a bit of Christmas in me.

    This sounds like someone who has a little child! Nice descriptions.

    I would change "it" here to "him," which is what you have used in the rest of the piece.
