Patchez

PATCHEZ By: Kitty Jones 11-12-13 I was not young when I found out about you But there was no question about what I should do I didn’t care if you were a boy or a girl I just wanted you in my world. I wanted to give you a life full of love And teach you about your Father above. I remember putting headphones all around my tummy I wanted you to be a rap star, I know that’s kinda funny. I was not young when I found out about you But there was no question about what I should do I remember the day you came into this world You sent my heart and mind a whirl. I remember the day you took your first walk I couldn’t understand your words when you talked. I remember the day that you turned one I fed you spelt cake with honey, we had so much fun. You worked with me in chicken houses picking up many eggs You chased every chicken with those chubby little legs. I was not young when I found out about you But there was no question about what I should do Together in life we have faced heart ache Do you remember the day I curved that rake? We’ve lived our lives just you and me I guess that’s the way it was suppose too be. We’ve been on so many trips together I cherish those memories, I’ll hold them forever. I was not young when I found out about you But there was no question about what I should do I look at you now and see a grown man So big, so strong with gentile loving hands. I look at you and treasure you’re face Your chubby little cheeks I once held with grace. I remember the days when I tickled your tummy. Now days you’re always asking me for money. Now tattoos and women are all that you know But you rap with your heart, I can feel the flow You’ve grown up so big and oh so tall One day you won’t need me at all. I was not young when I found out about you But there was no question about what I should do I love you my Patchez, and all you’ve become I want you to know, you’re the bestes of sons. Now whatever it is you do in life, I know you will succeed For Momma is always fervently praying, upon my knees.
