"Missing Mama's Love"
We were some bad a** dirt rock throwing
spider and bee fight
plum tree raiding
lizard and snake catching
Frankenstein dirt bike building
Evil Knievel wannabe's... Good for going fishing and start crying,
cause "Be Be kids" never wanna leave...
Racing around the block relays
Strike out box painted on the garage door
Three flies up, baseball and football in the street
Boy you betta slow down you're running too fast.
You got asthma and you know yo little a** can barely breathe.
Don't cry now, but you're starting to bleed.
That asphalt done damn near took all the skin off yo knees....
It was a daily routine to throw rocks at the birds in the trees.
Oooops, you broke they window... Ooohhh!!!! You better run cause they gone call the police.
Why you do dat? Now we all gone get in trouble,
cause you went and threw a steel rock a.k.a a dirty chunk of concrete...
We got into everything and Mama loved us all just the same.
We could be 5 blocks away and all Mama had to do,
was walk out onto the porch and call out our names.
We could recognize her voice in wind from a mile away.
We would take off running to get back before the street lights came on...
Through out all the generations Mama's love has never changed.
Mama always loved waaay more than just her own.
All of our friends called her Mama and she made sure that all of them felt like her house was their home...
The Greatest... The Sweetest...The most Beautiful generous Grandma in the world...
From, that little boy with an old soul reflecting on
pinches of all that love and wisdom you've given me... Hey Vic... I know ya still lookin out your window watching over us...
Mama... I love you, I love, love, love, love you and miss you waaay too much,
