    how much money did you make?
    how much of it can you take?
    i'm thinkin about it now
    as you're lowered to the ground
    how the laced out benz
    with the fish-tail fins
    cant sleep with me tonight or bring you back again.

    i'm thinking about how you said you would quit
    "one more play, and i swear this is it."
    i guess you were right, made that one last dime
    and maybe you didn't know it- but that trully was your last time.
    and i'm lookin around your funeral with brand new eyes
    all your chicks, all your boys- yet it was only me who cried.

    reminiscin on you, Boo.
    and all the men you ran through
    how you got all excited about what they might do
    how you were always sure the new one would pay you.
    how much money did he give you for your body at night?
    how much does HIV go for in this day and time?

    i stayed with you at the hospice and listened to you breathe
    i held you in my arms and wondered, why you aint listen to me?
    and i sat in the hallway this morning and just waited
    not one flower or visit from all those fools you dated.
    and now youre lost to us- a life just wasted.

    remembering about my angel T.J.
    and how you looked so happy that day.
    on your way to work with plans for that night
    cash your check, and let's all get right.
    you had a slight cough, nothing more.
    but you never complained, just "bye!" and out the front door.
    i was sure you'd be back in a little while
    so i never said goodbye, just waved, smiled.

    imagine hearing that you were gone just like that.
    two hours later i heard my heart is never coming back.
    GOD must have needed a new angel, and you were it
    but not until the moment i saw you here did i try to believe it...

    Meyon, sweet prince, always chasin the dough
    a newer car, a bigger house, a rolex and a hoe.
    baby boy, you just moved too fast
    and life is a race won by finishing last.
    so Kitochia, shine on, girl, cause what i learned from you
    there's a higher price tag on the streets than we knew
    once you get in, hoein is all they think youre gonna be about
    so don't take a number if you ain't ready to check out.
    Sweetest Toni, in our world you will always be alive
    you taught me the value of saying goodbye.
    expressing love and affection to dear ones every day
    and move on in peace should they ever go away.

    you can grieve forever how the ones you love are gone
    or you can learn from your loss and let their spirit ahine on.
    it takes thousands of joys, of wants, of strifes
    but these are my diamonds, created from the sands of life.
    ---peace. Ms.Dy
