my lonely mother,
face of endless travel,
smile withered and torn,
body battered by the harsh climate,
yet you are soo bold.
i love you for the promise you gave me,
found hope in a pool of tar,
you have soo little to give yet i feel complete.
took my hand when i was lost and hungry, then gave me a place to stay.
you are so warm.
tonight i sleep without you, waiting for the day to come.
all that i can offer is my life, take it as you wish.
