The stars in the sky don't talk the baby on the ground thinks of mother.
The eyes in the sky are blinking and blinking mother's heart is like lupin flower.
The tea garden of hometown is blooming with flowers mother's darling is on the other end of the world.
Every night when I think of mother's words my eyes will sparkle with tears when I think of lupin flower.
Every night when I think of mother's words
my eyes will sparkle with tears
my eyes will sparkle with tears when I think of lupin flower.
