Lament

Her smell is in my nostrils–
   I’m obsessed with her love
   My dear one
   The sweet smell of her– sticks in my brain
   My dear one, my love

No one loves me
No one knows my name

Mama can’t read nor write no more
   But her mark is everywhere
   Her mark is in my soul|
   Her mark is in my brain
   Mama can’t read, nor write

No one loves me
No one knows my name

When you reach for me, I’ll be there
   Does my lady still want me?
   She doesn’t say–
   Reach for me, my love
   I’m here

No one loves me
No one knows my name

When my woman comes back to me
   I will cover her in kisses
   I will love her with all my soul
   She will be mine again, I know
   She will be mine

No one loves me
No one wants my name
