Demo: 

Ma-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire

Liner Notes: 

A friend offered lyrics to put to music. It is written in an Afrikaans dialect- Northern Cape. A bit tricky as I do not speak the dialect and they leave words out...
English:
Ma

I listened to your voice
before you sew your beauty
deep inside you you held me
and softly whispered your love for me

foreign world I was brought in
lots of people around me
I felt hands
there was no love in so cool

then I heard your voice and your crying
warm hands full of love covered me
tight against you I hid
knew it was my place

with love you spoiled my years
the warm hands always show love
no fear of what will become of me
you show me to the world

MA today as with every day
I love and cherish you
Never.you stopped holding me
you were and are and remain my strength
unsaturated your love for me remained
even though I sometimes argued with you

My love for you will never perish
this is the core of my existence
Every day is for me Mother's Day
I don't have to wait for once a year
May you be blessed abundantly
May God SAVE you for a very long time

Lyrics: 

Ma

ek het na jou stem geluister
voor ekt jou skoonheid aanskou
diep binne het jy my vasgehou
en saggies jou liefde vir my gefluister

vreemde wereld is ek ingebring
klomp mense my omkring
ek het hande gevoel
daar was nie liefde in so koel

toe hoor ek jou stem en jou huil
warm hande vol liefde my bedek
styf teen jou het ek geskuil
het geweet dis my plek

met liefde jy my jare versorre
die warm hande altyd liefde betoon
geen vrees wat gaan van my worre
jy my aan wereld vertoon

MA vandag soos met elke dag
lief en koester ek jou
Nooit.jy opgehou om my vas te hou
jy was en is en bly my krag
onversadig jou liefde vir my gebly
al het ek soms met jou gestry

Nooit sal my liefde vir jou vergaan
dit is Kern van my bestaan
Elke dag is vir my Moedersdag
ek hoefie vir eenkeer 'n jaar te wag
Laat Seen u oorvloedig bewaar
Mag DJIRRE jou nog baie lank SPAAR
