FUNKADELIC FRIDAY: Goodbye Mamma

Dear Mamma,

On October 27, 2014, you were reunited with Daddy. He passed on June 17, 2011 which was a long time ago but you held in there like a true mother to ensure that I, your baby girl, would be alright.  I will miss you dearly.  I am so thankful for this second chance.  We were given the opportunity to get to know each other and for this I will always be grateful.  I promised Daddy that I would care for you for however long the Lord blessed me with you. I kept that promise and now you two are together again . . . FOREVER.  I will always love you Mamma.  This is for you.

Mamma
You gave life to me
Turned a baby into a lady.

And mamma
All you had to offer
Was a promise of a lifetime of love.

Now I know
There is no other
Love like a mother’s love for her child.

And I know
love so complete
Someday must leave
Must say goodbye.

Goodbye’s the saddest word I’ll ever hear.
Goodbye’s the last time I will hold you near.
Someday you’ll say that word and I will cry.
It’ll break my heart to hear you say goodbye.

Mamma
You gave love to me
Turned a young one into a woman.

And mamma
All I ever needed
Was a guarantee of you loving me.

‘Cause I know
There is no other
Love like a mother’s love for her child.

And it hurts so
That something so strong
Someday’ll be gone, must say goodbye.

Goodbye’s the saddest word I’ll ever hear.
Goodbye’s the last time I will hold you near.
Someday you’ll say that word and I will cry.
It’ll break my heart to hear you say goodbye.

But the love you givin me will always live.
You’ll always be there every time I fall.
You are to me the greatest love of all.

you take my weakness
and make me strong
And I will always love you
Till forever comes.

And when you need me
I’ll be there for you always.
I’ll be there your whole life through.
I’ll be there please stop crying its me ,mamma.

I’ll be your beacon through your darkest night.
I’ll be your wings that guide your broken heart.
I’ll be your shelter through the raining storm
and I will love you till forever comes.

Goodbye’s the saddest word I’ll ever hear.
Goodbye’s the last time I will hold you near.
Someday you’ll say that word and I will cry.
It’ll break my heart to hear you say goodbye.

‘Till we meet again,
Until then.. Goodbye.
