In Loving Memory ~ We Will Miss You

Youíre not here

I canít believe itís been so long.

I remember the day I said goodbye,

Like it was just yesterday.

I remember telling you to be careful

With the tape

So you decided not to take it,

But I insisted.

You still didnít take it.

Now I hold the tape in my hand

Knowing that you never got to listen to it.

I wish you had taken it

So that you could listen to her.

Your favorite singer,


I sit and listen to the tape

Wondering if you would of like the songs.

I know you would of

Because you like all her songs.

I just wish you had taken it

So that I know you were happy

Before you passed away.

What was going through your mind?

Were you thinking of us?

Did you pray that you would not die?

I want to know what you were thinking

Right before you died.

I miss you so much Ma.

I wish you were here.

Youíve missed so much.

You missed Jennifer and me graduating.

You missed Albert going to high school.

You never got to see your first grandchild.

She would have been real close to you.

She has your hair,

But has Jenniferís attitude

And Chungoís activeness.

You missed so much Ma.

I wish you were here.

I think about you everyday.

Ma, you will always be in our hearts.

We love you Ma.

Rest In Peace
