The African Mother longs to see her burden lifted off her back
She so faithfully brings up her sons and daughters in deep hope
Wherever, whenever, whatevershe hopes beyond all odds
She longs for the day the dust will settle and let her enjoy her toil
See hers eyes longingly watching
Hear her ears patiently listening
Feel her heart unyieldingly yearning
Will her sons and daughters make a difference?
Will they meet the expectations of her heavy heart?
Mama Africa will one day smile above her veil of struggle
