Where were a woman without a mother?
Oh, how sad her life would be.
Where were a daughter without a father?
Oh, how empty her heart would be.
Where were a sister without a brother?
Who would her comrade be?
Where were a wife without a husband?
Who would her companion be?
Where were a life without these?
In the hands of those who don't care to be.
