Sitting here at the laundry mat, teaching the girl her ABC's. She's so smart, can't believe how much she's grown. Years ago, life was so unknown. Now I'm working and we have a home. I've got her and she's got me. She says Mommy your all I need. It warms my heart; it melts the snow. Only this mommy would know... When the green-eyed girl looks up at you, holds your hand as you cross the street. Momma's heart skips a beat. That sweet kiss goodnight on the cheek and then you hear " I love you" from down the hall. Baby girl and I are doing this on our own. Don't need no man to make this a home. I once thought it had to be, now I'm finding out nothing is how you plan it to be. Shit this isn't where I thought I'd be; low-income housing and food stamps for me. Where is my ring. Where are my three kids. Where the family photo that should be on the fridge. Where is her Daddy, when she needs him the most? I know where I stand, I know who I am. Until my day ends, all be here until that last i love you and kiss goodnight. This mother's love won't burn out. Cause when I'm gone, all love you more. All watch you grow, as I stand above you. All be your angel...cause this momma will never leave you. Krissy 2015
I wrote this song when my daughter was 5 or 6 years old, we lived-in low-income housing, and I had raised her on my own. She was my motivation, my reason to strive. My biggest fear was what would happen to her if I wasn’t alive.
