• In the dark I wait alone.
    Waiting for my mother to come home.
    Not knowing when my next meal will come.
    All I have now is a piece of gum
    I wait and wait all alone.
    When is my mother going to come home?
    I prayed and cried and called out here name.
    I thought about her with lots of shame.
    I wait in the dark all alone.
    Now knowing for sure she is not coming home.
