Mother once told me
That everything was ok
That there was another day
For me to believe
And feel relieved
But nothing was ok.

My mother would leave
In the middle of the night
Out of sight
I would wait
Waiting for my fate
This other women would
Come home, who
Was not my mother.
She had her look
But that's not all it took.
She stumbled, fumbled,
And then crumbled.
I stood and watched
Holding my breath.
She goes to sleep
As I weep
Where is my mother?

Mother once told me
That everything was ok
That there was another day
For me to believe
And feel relieved
But nothing was ok

I see red and blue
From my room
There is a knock
And I hear open up.
I run to the door
Barely touching the floor.
I open up
And what do I see
A black creature with a
shiny silver plate
And eyes like dark sea.
They don't say a word
And walk right pass me
I follow
Feeling hollow
They take way that women
That came home
Instead of my mother.

Mother once told me
That everything was ok
That there was another day
For me to believe
And feel relieved
But nothing was ok

I stand barely moving
I watch the women
Get taken away.
Maybe, we will see
Each other that other day
Trying to boo away any harms
To protect me is my arms
I stand there thinking
Not even blinking
Feeling numb
Tearing cascade down my face
I know cause I recognize the taste
Then it hits me
Like Jerry hits Tom
Those creatures took
Away my mom.
