Mother's Day

This song is by Lucy Kaplansky and appears on the album Reunion (2012).

It's mother's day, I'm in an airport alone
My daughter sounds happy on the phone
I've had her picture in my head all day
A mother wraps up her baby and walks away

She's asleep when I get home
I wake up before anyone
Climb in her bed with her
And hold my body next to hers

Just an ordinary day, hey ay

I kiss her face when she's awake
She tells me about yesterday
She brings me the card she made for me
Molly and Bob on an apple tree

And I pour her milk, cook her eggs
Make her lunch, pack her bag
Walk her to school, kiss her goodbye
She runs inside and start to cry

Just an ordinary day
Just an ordinary day
An ordinary day, hey ay

And I see that nanny from Nepal
And I thank her for the mother's day card
She's bringing up someone else's son
It's been four years since she's seen her own

At 3, Molly's back in my arms
And she takes her ball and runs off with a friend
Some bad kids try to take it away
She grabs it right back, she's not afraid

Just an ordinary day
Just an ordinary day
An ordinary day, hey ay

Later on I watch her sleep
That same picture returns to me
6 years ago, December day
A mother wraps up her baby and walks away

Just an ordinary day, hey ay, ay
