Yaaba (Grandma’s Love)

Living on ground
Yaaba walked
Bless the earth
Yaaba saw
Harvesting fruits
Yaaba planted

I am blessed
I am truly blessed
For the air I breathe
I am blessed
By Yaaba’s kindness

Her skin like the sun
Purifies my path
Shines my way
Bliss from Yaaba’s smiles
Leaves my soul full

Yaaba I love you
Till the rising of my soul
Till the rebirth of my spirit
I love you
For all the struggles you endured
I love you
For the night’s showers
I love you
Yaaba, your love
will last me
till I see my final light
Your strength
will find me
till I reunite with your glowing shine
