SWEET MOTHER

Mother where are you, Can you see what is happening? The world has gone crazy The world has turned upside down Men live in their heads now, Feet barely touching the ground, And don’t know where they’re going! Nobody seems to know! In the light of your leaving I begin to understand The world revealed in your words. O Grand Mum, How I weep in your absence! I think of you every day, Of all the sober thoughts You harbored for my future, But the listening ears you trained In me still struggle To make sense Of a world you left too soon. For the world does not yet hear your words Or feel their impact as I do, The sweetness of your pudding Does not feed the hungry of The earth as God might wish, And the news of recent days Seems to be all that you foretold Desiring my protection. O Great Mum How I wish you had not Gone so soon, that you might see The tragedy that I see now In our world. We cry all day and night, Yet it seems the great God Has abandoned us, gone deaf... We are in grave predicament Though we are born to die. As a vessel of your Holy Words I swear to take the Message of your love To my generation. I do this to pay My great respect! I will place your silent moan And the groan of my own generation On the altar of the living God.
