Mama Song…


First of all…HAPPY NUEVO ANO to anyone reading this.

So, last night we had plans to go to Susie’s for a party. I wasn’t really feeling it. I wasn’t really in the mood to be festive. The same thing happened last year. I got all amped about the party and when it came down to it, I was cool on it. But I forced myself to get ready. While I was getting ready, I had the music up loud to help with the mood lightening. Jabari came and commadeered the stereo. He put on a cd and told me to come listen to a specific song. He knew I was kinda missing my mom and told me that this particular song helped him. Check it out. Auts, grab a tissue.

“MAMA SONG” by Kirk Franklin

Verse 1
Summertime has come and gone
The leaves are slowly falling
The other day my mother heard
The voice of Jesus calling
He said come home with me my child
I’ll take away your strife
Mama went to sleep on this side
And woke up in paradise

Chorus
Oh but how I miss her so
More than you’ll ever know
How I miss her so
More than you’ll ever know
How I miss her so
More than you’ll ever know

Verse 2
When I was a little boy
Mama rocked me in her arms
She protected me from danger
And she kept me safe and warm
But mama is not here now
And I’m standing by myself
But as long as I’ve got Jesus
I don’t need nobody else

Chorus
Oh but how I miss her so
More than you’ll ever know
How I miss her so
More than you’ll ever know
I miss her so
More than you’ll ever know

As always, like a big baby, I cried and reflected on it. After that, I felt at ease and continued to get ready. After arriving at the shindigerama, I was cool. I spent most of the time hanging out with Adrian (Gloria’s son), playing with motos and trains. I was totally ok with it. I had one beer and toasted at Midnight. I was content with the outcome of the whole evening. Am I getting too old because I didn’t feel like being a raging party animal?

Anywho…I have great hopes for 2007. Some will surprise many…but all will be part of the growing process. Stay tuned!
