Mom, you never came for me
Every day I waited for you
Day, night and morning;
Mom you never came for me
And now you are in mourning.
They snatched me from you
When you were still nursing;
To kill the Indian in me,
But that was just the beginning.
Used, abused and tortured
Electrocuted, assaulted and sick;
I was hungry, cold and battered
Yet, you never came for me.
Mother, father, granny and brother;
I talked to you every night;
Through the stars and the moon
That one day, you know my plight.
Tears of blood I cried
To come home, I sincerely tried.
I sneaked out in the middle of the night
Could not gauge the river’s might.
Now under the soil we lay;
In peace and harmony;
We are Angels in the sky
Please keep away from acrimony.
Keep us in your memories
But please don’t cry and sweat;
We wish you all the best; lets move on,
Try to forgive and forget.
