    Mama I've been gone from home so long
    just been out trying to "make it" in a
    "got to make it" world...
    but when I get back I learn that my brother is
    gone...
    .............
    .............

    God must've need another angel
    one to Watch over the house
    maybe God foresaw some terrible thing
    in our future and needed an angel
    to place his arms around our
    place of solitude...

    but da...mn...why him?

    I try not to question...but the answers
    I find don't lesson...this pain I'm in///
    I even had a couple of drinks
    so I wouldn't have to think but my
    heart continues to sink

    "...into the paper like I was ink"

    even Rakim's smooth flow don't help
    and I'm Hip Hop to the bone
    but my beat is still...

    da...mn, mama "is this real?"

    I mean Watcher, gone?

    I can't see things through crimson eyes
    to much crying, but I know you wouldn't lie
    Mama, I'm sorry for being gone so long

    this all feels so wrong
    I know many a men who've killed
    by claiming to keep it real
    and they still slapping concrete with
    cold timbo booted feet

    da...mn mama why do all the good brothers die?

    Yes, mama I know our bodies are only temporary
    residences for our spirits that are everlasting
    but that doesn't make me hurt any less
    I guess, I'll just go to my room and cry...
    silently...I need silence to recite his words in my
    head to the rhythm of
    tears that descend to ease this pain I'm in

    I'll remember him as the brother he was, still is and will always
    be...


    REAL.

    Yeah my brother was a real blak man.

    I thank God for that.

    "Brother you will be missed. Even though we never formally met, I have met you through your poetry, your words. Thank you for your presence
    and inspiration for me to move my pen. I know you will be Watching us to make sure we stay true and keep us safe. God has blessed himself with your presence. I'll meet you when I get there."
