    Continueing the new free style.......My first thoughts of the day, mothers day was a little diff. for my family just Lost the BIG MOMMA, a couple of weeks ago so.......





    Oh momma.........Dont cry..........Please momma..Dont cry......
    See I told her this cause it was easy for me to say
    I say, I told her this cause it was easy for me to say
    It wasnt cause she was my mother, but cause hers has passed away
    For the first time this day had a little more meaning
    Yeah you see smirks, but the smiles are misleading
    We put on a happy front just to make ends meet
    While in side everyones heart cried out in defeat
    Baby dont cry....Baby dont cry..momma now said to me
    See she told me this cause she love me and new I hurt so deep
    For the first time in this life time the family must move on
    How do look past a love one, who held the family strong
    Brother dont cry.........Bro dont cry....you know how granny loved you
    Put nothing past it she'd place no child above you
    Are any of her children, grand or whatever
    Grandma was the number #1 supporter in all her childrens endeavors
    Sista dont cry....Sista dont cry.......Granny's watchen over U
    She blessed you with the name JOY just for you to hold on too!
    She gave everyone a little something, if we only understand
    Granny made the family what it is, gave us a reason to stand
    Family dont cry......See grannys past the torch
    Mommas the new foundation, everythings build from her porch
    Happy Mothers Day momma, I know you'll stand strong
    Ive witnessed your strength and how you prolong.................to be cont.

    This was so beautiful and touching
    it's always hard when you lose
    the pillar of your family...but that
    strength passes on...as you
    conveyed in this peace...
    your work pulled at the
    heartstrings....
    Emotive Scribe...
    thanks for allowing us
    to feel with you...

    This was heartfelt, just trying to make it through the day, and I know it's got to be hard. But with each second, each minute, each hour, it does eventually become more bearable. Sorry for your loss, keep flowing.
