I watched you many times.
My heart cried out for you.
A world of your own,
And love your only crime!
I thought I was loved to!
Mother, how could I have ever known?
I heard your words call to me.
My soul truly loved you!
A world of handed down shame,
And your need to sincerely believe!
I thought I was needed to!
Mother, how could I have seen the very same?
I felt your warmest touch.
My mind wanted the mother in you!
A world of your fame,
And your want for so much more!
I thought I was wanted to!
Mother, what is it that I can I truly claim?
I prayed for you day and night,
My faith needed me to!
A world of mine I have inside to give,
And my need feels like my only right!
I thought I gave all of this to you!
Mother, I must have died so you could live!
