this one's for you mama! "Your Flowers" by ss. dionne

You carried me nine months and always say

"I would do it all over again" on every birthday

You taught me how to walk, kneeling there with arms wide open

You gave me my first words spoken..

Mama you made ways out of No way

There is not one night that you didn't pray

All of my life you told me what the Lord could do..

You would say "child I pray for all of you.."

Tell me what can I give someone who prayed for me before yourself

I'll give you your flowers today if nothing else

I'll take this opportunity

Because mama I know you sacrifice your life for me

So I'll give you your flowers while you're living and say

Thank you for being the hero in my life each day..

I'm grown up now with a family of my own

Yet still with you is where I feel at home..

I know I don't call as much as I could

But I think of you Mama and it feels so good..

I remember the things that we use to do

I thank God for having a mom like you

You would always say "you are my child until and after death.."

Lady I will cherish those word until my last breath..

Tell me what can I give someone who prayed for me before yourself

I'll give you your flowers today if nothing else

I'll take this opportunity

Because mama I know you sacrifice your life for me

So I'll give you your flowers while you're living and say

Thank you for being the hero in my life each day..

And for every time you said "Dionne humble yourself and never be afraid to bow to God and pray.."

Well Mama I prayed.. you see I prayed for you today!

Thanks for taking the time and doing what you chose to do in your loving way

I'll give you your flowers and say "Happy Birthday"!!
