A girl stood on a crowded street
Her clothes were thin and bare,
Her eyes were bright her body slim
Her skin was very fair.

Her mom was sick at home in bed
Her fever was so high,
She could not talk to her small girl
Twenty-two days to die.

A tear slid down the child's face
She loved her mum so much,
She tried to buy the perfect gift
To show a gentle touch.

She cried and cried and with all her heart
But no good it would do,
She chose to tell her mum a phrase
That phrase was "I Love You."

Her arms reached up to hug that girl
Felt as she passed away,
Nothing shall ever be the same
Oh Mother please do stay.
