free cee CURSED IF NOT TAKEN FIRST dedicated to my mom who left me 18 months ago


‘Tis this stand I and swear to thee
Before she goes Lord please take me
That these eyes of mine born of blue
Not see the day when I curse you

She may not want now to stay
But first, beg I, take me away
Wherever bound that I may be
Please my Lord, first take me

Spare me the loss of a woman whose inner beauty shone
A lady unlike most or many grown
Forgiveness was her credo known
And pray thee I……..leave me not alone

Please cause not a rift far too wide
That my disdain shall not abide
My soul seeks solace by you, my Lord
But losing her is a price I cannot afford

So raise not an anger within me
That her son’s belief no longer be
So before her death be your decree
Please, my Lord, first take me

    Jeffry you greatly honor your mother and all lucky enough to be called your friend. You have much work still to do and lives to touch. Beautiful...

    Beautiful tribute to your mom Jeffry, but unfortunately we all have our time to go and in the loving order of things, I believe your mom wanted to go first to prepare the way so when you arrive, she can welcome you with open arms and you can finally hold her close to your heart again, for love never ends, it only extends, from here to there, it's in the air, love xxx
