Appointed By Him... Still


too young,
mother surrogate
but beautiful she child
and
beautiful she voice when she call
for mother.

what best for she child now
mother know
... she did know then too.

yuh come lately,
late or yuh eh reach...
early enough was mother
too early yuh say then
now is nay...

but is now we is

and young,
still!
mother surrogate,
too young
still!
but
beautiful she child
and
beautiful she voice when she call
for me,
mother surrogate,
she mother
always...
