Page 1, back then

Modest stoic maiden, keeper of the door.

Master paid gold like others before.

GOD in heaven is my salvation.

BUT - when he calls, tribulation.

Secrets, I can not tell you, happen.

The door closes with a part of me.

From a child, I keep the door clean.

Master is a cotton, tobacco man.

Brought my parents from another land.

This is all I know GOD and a door to keep.

At nights my tears, they do speak.
