Not having Power of Attorney, has now kept sleep from me for days
Because of my moms so called friend, and all her evil ways
She put my mom into an elderly facility without even my consent
Moved out of my moms house that she rented, for a measly $300. rent
She said my mom gave her the house, while she revised her will one day
When I asked my mom this three different times, she always said "no way"
Being a friend of my moms for so many years, I didn't think I needed to worry
"We're taking good care of her don't worry," was always the same old story
Don't worry we're taking good care of her, and everything is going just fine
Little did I know she was thinking, "Ha-ha one day this will all be mine"
Now she is talking about a restraining order, to keep me from seeing my mom
As she destroys my moms life savings, like a ticking little time bomb
My mom was staying at her daughters, that's supposed to be some kind of nurse
But as the months slowly passed, I noticed her memory was getting worse
Her daughter took our wedding picture, off the wall in my mothers room
So she wouldn't be able to see me, and that only brought her gloom
We then had another made, with a heart that said "To the worlds greatest mom"
Again that picture was hidden from her, which made my mother begin to sob
When she would cry and say, "Where's my son" that was all just part of there plan
Making others think I never came to see her, now that was way out of hand
Every time I called, after two rings I would always get the answering machine
So a message of love to my mother, is what I would always leave
But my calls were never returned, and I could never understand why?
They probably told her I never called, just to make her always cry
How could someone do that? I guess it's all because of greed?
I guess their heartless, loveless souls, just do it because it's a need
