Seeing my sleeping child I smiled
It was days since I had her by my side
She looked so innocent and so cute
I could not help kissing her tiny hands

The mother in me had not died I realized
Though it was more than a year since I had her by my side
My duty forced me leave her alone
And fly to land seven seas beyond

I often wondered why I was doing so
Wanted to leave everything and return
But then those other eyes filled with hope bright
Forced me to stay back and toil

Not one day did I forget my little one
She came in my dreams and slept in my arms
The mother in me wiped a tear from her eyes
And sang her a lullaby soft and sweet

Her innocent eyes made me smile
Her painful cry filled my eyes
I wished I could always have her by my side
But destiny would not permit me take her along

I worked as a maid in a land full of hope
Aspiring to build a nest for my babe
I toiled there from morning to night
Wishing to give her the best of life

The thought of her set my wings on fire
Gave me the courage to see a dream for her future
I wanted to give her a better life
So she would not have to suffer as her mother, I

I knew she was safe in this land of mine
A guardian angel was always there by her side.
I knew she would grow up to be strong
The guardian angel would guide her along

She will miss me, I am sure
She will understand me, I also know
The guardian angel will help her grow
Loving the mother who has to leave her alone
