How do I keep going?
How do I keep growing?
How do I keep tears from constantly overflowing?
Who can I run to?
Who can I turn to?
Who can I call to come to my rescue?
Emptiness around me; I’m all alone.
Loneliness surrounds me; I’m on my own.
In reality, there’s more than just me.
Playing happily are children of three.
Through them I see hope.
Through them I see joy.
Through them all my doubts are easily destroyed.
So how do I keep going from one place to another?
They’re my inspiration, for I am their mother.
