if you were mine
I’d have brought you up and away
she whom you stand beside,
a tired but very glad kid
after that long bus ride
until those big folk let you go.
Finally you’re here, and not too late
to smile for all of San Antonio.
where you’re from, and your mother’s.
If we never see you again, all the same,
you have our hearts, you and the others.
