    GROUND....IS SHAKING

    Yesterday was "MOTHER'S DAY", and this is a shot out to you,
    they're sorry mom for all the pain...they ever put you through.

    The many years you stood by them...and died a little for each,
    you patched their wounds, and dried their tears...and kept them close...within your reach.

    You fed them and clothed them...and did it with care,
    when they got sick...their burdens, you'd bear.

    ((((((((((((((((((((((((I SEEN IT)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
    ((((((((((((((((I WATCHED ALL OF THIS ...)))))))))))))))))))))
    ((((((((((((((((((((((((((((BUT))))))))))))))))))) ))))))))))))))))

    I wrote this for the others...you know...the ones you kept with you?
    well, see...they didn't have time to honor you.
    no matter what they put you through.

    I know you did all this mom...cause I watched in pain... as you did it,
    and I refuse to see the hurt that you'll have,
    I just can't...let them take you through it.

    But I'm here for you mom...you know...the one you gave away?
    I'm filling in for your other kids...on this very special day.

    Mom...I called you 7 times yesterday...
    yes, ..it was me on the other end,
    when you answered the phone the last time,
    I said I was a dear old friend.

    I wanted so bad to say...HEY MOM, IT'S ME
    but in my heart I knew it's me...you didn't want to see.

    So I cleared my throat, ..held back the tears,
    just to manage ...to give you a grin.

    I didn't want to hear the pain in your voice,
    of the fear...that it wasn't them.

    I love you Mom...
    but I'm not "THEM"
