A Plea

Mummy, sing me to sleep.
I can't sleep mummy.
Horrid dreams haunt me.
Mummy, will you come from Heaven and hold me?

Mummy, I miss you.
It's not the same without you.
Mummy, will you come from Heaven and hold me?


Mummy, others make fun of me.
“Motherless son” they call me.
I cry though, I try not to.
Mummy, will you come from Heaven and hold me?


Mummy, it's not the same without you.
I am so alone mummy.
There is no love without you.
Mummy will you come from Heaven and hold me?

Mummy, I am only thirty two years old.
I should still have you.
Mummy, will you come from Heaven and hold me?
