PRINCE of my Heart


Most annoying around dining table
Lovely mom singing a same song
When, when, when
Worrisome miss traditional wedding
After a long stay in hospital bed

Preferred a prince of my heart
Modern wedding plan in mind
But mom dreaming Sumatra prince
Traditional culture of ancestor

Insomnia in dilemma
Dying mom nor prince
Would never be wounded
What should I do

Humming in hospital bed
Wish to inaugurated an Ulos scarf
Unique traditional wedding
And sing Borhat ma Dainang @
Before going to heaven

Dark cloud, flying to Sumatra island
To bury her in ancestor's land
My cheeks never stop wet
Her dream never come true

But God answered our prayers
No more pain, she RIP
Blessed me God, blessed me mom
With a prince of my heart

@ Good bye my dear daughter
