My mother hums
The top ten popular songs
Of the day
Like multiple pieces
Strung together

She hums
So beautiful
And sweet
That makes the birds
In the trees
Chirp and tweet

Every single moment
I wonder
Why she hums
And yonder

She hums
So wonderful
That gets her through the day
A lovely hum
That keeps my feelings at bay

She hums
A special song
When she tucks me into bed
Conquers my fear of darkness
And drives away
The ghosts at night
That linger in my head

How can I survive
This everyday life
I will never know
A never ending struggle
If it were not for her
I could be nowhere
