how are you mum?
haven't seen you in ages.
I have grown up by now
minimum wages.

saving for school, you know
higher education
to become a decent girl
with good qualification

where are you mum?
I wished for you to be there
when I become
do you even wonder?
do you still remember?
are you happy?
and your sleep, light or heavy?

I still love you mum
and wish you the best
for the moment now
and all for the rest.
