Sitting silently as she gazes
At the Heaven above,
A shooting star is darting by.
A smile lights up her pixie face
When she hears the whisper,
She reaches out her arms to fly!
Is that star, her mother now,
In Heaven's garden looking down;
She was just an infant then.
Brush of the breeze on her cheeks
Softly brings a mother's touch
Her parched heart awaits the rain!
She gazes at the night sky,
With bated breath when life is hard.
For a soft comforting gentle kiss.
As she goes about her daily chores
With abusive men and termagants,
Her mother's touch, is her only bliss!
