    Mother and Child

    Only a motion away.

    "No I would not give you false hope

    On this strange and mournful day

    But the mother and child reunion

    Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine.

    I can't for the life of me

    Remember a sadder day

    I know they say let it be

    But it just don't work out that way

    And the course of a lifetime runs

    Over and over again."

    Paul Simon
