Our Precious Mothers

Written by Theresa “Bear” Fox

2005

Oh my mother I’m so sorry for the pain that you been through

But now that I’m older and I am wiser, I’m going to take good care of you

I’m so sorry for the times that I did not show respect

And I allowed myself and others to put our problems upon you back

Chorus:

Yo ha yo ho weh ya he ya yo ha yo ho weh ya he

Yo ha yo ho weh ya he ya yo ha yo weh ya he

Yo ha yo ho weh ya he

When I see a starlit night, I seek the one that shines real bright

Then I think about you mother and I hope that your alright

I finally opened up my eyes , and I’ve come to realize

I appreciate your guidance and I’m glad you’re in my life

Repeat Chorus

Oh Mother Earth we’re so sorry for the pain that you’ve been through

But now that we are older and we are wiser, we are going to take good care of you

We are so sorry for the times that we did not  show respect

and we allowed ourselves and othersTo put our garbage on our turtle’s back.

Repeat Chorus

We know that you are trying to continue to provide

For all your children you take care of , you’re trying hard to help us survive

We are the Onkwehonwe we are the caretakers of the earth

 

We must  take care of our life sustainers, our precious mothers who gave us birth.

Repeat Chorus

When I see a starlit night

I seek the one that shines real bright

Then I think  of our precious  mothers , and I hope that they’re alright
