It was always meals, love

it was always meals love
was a little girl thin
it might’ve been cos she was such a good cook she showed her love
protective shopping and cooking
I’d queue for potatoes the war was on
she’d make soups
chicken vegetable to fill you up satisfied
she worked hard
one of the most important things to have
is a good mother caring protective loving
lentil soup thick fogs
came home by bus
couldn’t see your hand
got home dropping with hunger
brown lentil soup
wonderful grateful freezing how many miles
walked thick fog peasouper glad to be home
never forgotten
never never never
she was an angel
