Mama and them, took us aside When we cried She wiped our eyes She grandma and Auntie Bathed and feed us Took us to church learnt us bout' JESUS And when it was time for bed We kids would put on pyjamas and them night shoes ~ NIGHT SHOES We won't need in glory On them heavenly golden grounds NIGHT SHOES Worn in the daylight Shines in steps of grace When grandpa died grandma said he paid his dues Ole granny told the mortician, sir, please dress him in them old Night Shoes

Such a beautiful poem, James! It brought tears of joy to my eyes. I truly believe women w/the spirit of Lois and Eunice infused you w/great faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It shows in this magnificent poem, brother. Love and joy always.
