It's hard to watch your family fall apart,
It's like the blood stops pumping from your heart.
Everyone expects you to go insane, 
'Cause they doubt that you can cope with such pain.
You are struggling to keep your mind together,
But nothing is impossible to you 'cause you're a mother.
You know that your children believe in you,
They look only to you to help them through,
So if you fail they fail too.

And you almost break down you almost give in,
But for your children you fight back you fight to win.
