Mama would say no of you
Too tall and all
The height that is

She would wish a finer dish
In thought and walk
And more clean-talk

Mama’s heart would break in two
To see my lumber
Beside you


First fearfully made, consecrated one

Then daughter, blessed by a blood second to none

An auntie, to dear flesh -my heart did they steal

Now “Hi Mom” to Tiger, a cub with my zeal

He blessed me, here I stand, in nothing but grace

Surrounded in mercy’s why I seek His face
