My Moms, My Heart

It took me a long time to understand.

That it takes a woman to make a man.

My Momma carried our struggles on her back.

There’s no way in the world I forget that.

I carry your love with me everywhere I go.

As a little kid confused so much I didn’t know.

A husband that mistreat you.

Did things that would mislead you.

Taken away I could not reach you.

But our loves so strong we couldn’t be separated.

To have you hold me, it’s greatly anticipated.

Your smile is all I care to see.

Making up for lost time, just you and me.

As a kid I never understood why you left.

As a grown man I cherish you till my last breath.

I know you’d give your last dime to make me smile.

That kind of love carries me through my tribulations and trials.

So beautiful in a world that’s ugly.

Never really had much but thanks to you it was lovely.

Let me carry all of your suffering and pain.

Together we can find happiness again.

I love you mom.
