Growing up poor and lean,
Shy, unnoticed...barely seen
I thought to myself†
why is this life so mean?
Resting on Mama's strong wings
She got me through the dark nights,
Through the long years†
Made me believe in better†days
while wiping away the strong tears
I thank her for restoring
my childhood dreams
She refreshed me like a beautiful bay
Kept my eyes on the light
so I wouldn't fade away
My mama my queen
