Ancestors

When my heart is broken
o my Ancestors, you fill it with love.
When my eyes fill with tears
o my Ancestors, you weep with me.
When my burden is too heavy
o my Ancestors, you lend me your strength.

O my Ancestors, know that
though your names may be forgotten
you are carried in my heart.

O mothers of my mother,
o fathers of my father,
let me keep you close.
