death cannot kill you, dear mother

soft-spoken & fair woman 
with much assurance to every child
her fair heart tallied with her colour
for hers was a fair pigmented skin
generous & kind to a fault
a face with ever-beaming smile
she lived one angel on this horizon
mother badaiki, loved by all
hers was a love-bound heart
when was she angry? when frowning? 
’tis the hardest to say she lived for us
mother badaiki, loved by all -
& death cannot kill you, dear mother!
