I REMEMBER MAMA


I REMEMBER MAMA
MARY IS HER NAME
A WOMAN KIND AND LOVING
ALWAYS THE SAME
HAIR EYES BLACK AS COAL
SHE WOULD NOT WANT US TO REMEMBER
HER FRAIL AND OLD
THATíS WHY I DECIDED TO CREAMATE
AS HER SOUL ENTERED HEAVENS GATE
WITH OPEN ARMS JESUS CAME
GRANDMAMA AND BROTHERS AND MANY A FAME
TO WELCOME MAMA W/PEACE NO SHAME
NO MORE SUFFERING NO MORE PAIN
IíM CONFORTED HER ASHES STAY W/ME
SOME IN BROOKLYN AND SOME AT SEA
I WILL PLANT A BEAUTIFUL TREE FOR MAMA MEMORY VIGILANTE
GOOD AND KIND SPIRIT SHE WAS
CAME TO THIS COUNTRY WHEN ONLY 16
TO WORK HARD AS A WOMAN WHEN ONLY A TEEN
NEVER GAVE UP WORKED LONG AND HARD
FOUND A JOB AT BROOLYKN NAVY YARD
SHE SAVED HER MONEY FOR A DREAM COME TRUE
WENT BACK TO GET THE FAMILY MOTHER BROTHER AND COUSIN TOO
I WEAR THIS CROSS W/HER ASHES INSIDE
MAMA WILL ALWAYS BE MY ANGEL MY GUIDE.




-POEM MADE BY ANNIE I DEDICATE THIS TO MY MOM
