Dear Mother Makeba

My heart is pounding in my chest - it's hard to say good-bye
In exile, you loved us all
and lifted your voice to free your people
I'll remember you
I'll lift my voice, too
I'll remember the Mother who sang Children to Freedom
I'll try to do the same

Love to you,
from one of the children who listened.

Happy Journey Ahead of Us
