Secret Lovers, Secret Daughters


Sitting silent in the corner

of a poorly lit room

her head huddled over a parcel in her lap

wondering if I’ll show up soon

it was under the silver moon

We turned our lives golden

through sweat and tears

We gave us a new name

a sun to last us all our years

together, and even if they disparage you

because of my legacy

I’ll show them who I can be

in spite of the darkness around me

so when I descend the staircase

and I catch the tear in your eye

I hear her crying come to a sudden end

and I know we’re gonna be alright
