Eloquence I See

Looking in the mirror just to see my mom again,
Hard to face reality God wash away my sins…
Bring my mother back to me, I will substitute my
Mind and heartbeat just to have her here with me.
Feeling every bit when the emotional pain creeps,
And it’s just letting my thoughts grieve…
Just wanna hold her hand, just wanna hear her voice,
Just wanna see that beautiful smile – yes! Heavensent…
Holding you in my arms, embrace your care and strength…
Mom I apologize for my disobedience, God open up your
Sky move the clouds and let my spirit in.
Overwhelmed by these seas of uncertainty; lost
In the depths of myself cause how I used to live…
Mom you are the anchor in my life and now I
Understand, how to think, how to see, how to love,
How to breathe…how to use every jewel that you’ve
Given me, yes I cry mom, because all I have is
Memories, many times I wanna take it back to
’83…we shared the same heartbeat, through your
Lifeline you nurtured me. 1984 the 25th of January
Opened up the lids of my eyes smiled, seen my
Queen. Your love sustains me as I overcome adversity
Negotiate with God only He can understand me. I’m
Proud to be your son, put that on everything…
Looking in the mirror – Eloquence I see.

In Loving Memory of my Beautiful Queen
