my mother told me on her deathbed
'take care of your brother and father,
they can't make it on their own'
but when she was laid in her grave,
her words I forgot, I looked the other way
yes my father grew old and my brother he cried
but my hard heart could not be swayed
and when you called me the other day
I could not think of nothing to say
though my very bones did shake for you
yes my heart aches for the love I've missed
maybe I could have kept you if I'd had more
kindness
oh mother please forgive me
for try as I will, I just am not built for giving,
I am not built for this.
