The Wind Cried Mary

The Wind Cried Mary


The wind it

Called her name

And she was gone

But a star

Was born instead


And while no one


For sure

Just how many

Stars burn bright


Mark these words

My friend another one

Shall surely shine tonight

While I shall whisper soft 

Her name again that of Mother
