Give us your pain
The three of us
Born to you
Will know what to do

We learned from you
Lessons on sacrifice
How to love, hope, and pray
What to do when there are no words to say

Give us your pain
What’s been inflicted on you
We can turn it into something good

The way you taught us to
But don’t ask us to go away
To leave you alone
You never showed us how to stop

With you there was always a way
So when the last whisps of hope are gone
We will still be trying
Still willing you on

Give us your pain, Mom
We know what to do
We’ll stand side by side
Linked arm and arm
The three of us and you
