Exquisite girl

Exquisite girl
donned in cotton
existing on an island you hate
fly away to a city
and find your one true mate
and work 
and live
and strive to make things better
for me and my sisters and my brother
wipe away those tears 
wipe away those fears 
renew your dreams each day
life isn't what you wanted
but, this is how it'll have to stay
dear mother,
don't worry
your life was not in vain
your sacrifice is the device
that made things right again
