Mama

What day
Is it today?

Ma
Ma
Mama
Answer me
For you’ll still be

Ma
Ma
Mama
What day
Is it today?
Oh
It’s ma’s day
The tenth of May

Ma
Ma
Mama
Did you say
The tenth of May?
Why, it’s Mother’s Day!

Ma
Ma
Mama
Did you speak?
Or will this madness peak?

Ma
Ma
Mama
Give me a new line
I still have mine
I want to call you
Will someone put me through?

Ma
Ma
Mama
I can see you
Please let me through
Your world of silence
Your silent presence
Your present absence

Ma
Ma
Mama
Your absent smile
That I craved for a while
As you peacefully lay
In the morgue this day
A month before May
I’ll keep at bay

Ma
Ma
Mama,
Beautiful Ma
It’s your day
Smile again today
Like you did that day
In the month of December!
That smile, Ma,
I love to remember
In this presence, Ma, of your absence
