Once upon a time there was an old lady who was sick in bed.
She was lonely,
and she did not have a husband.
Her husband died a long time ago in 1969.
She went to his funeral and she cried.
She went back and called her daughter and told her daughter,
your father died.
Her daughter was crying on the telephone,
and the mother told her daughter to come to her house.
I can take care of you.
We can be together for a while.
We will need each other right now,
because I am very lonely
and I love you, dear daughter
