Momma's Songs

by Tina Crute



I gaze upon the sunshine in the sky
and wonder where it went in eighty-two.
The day my Momma died, it disappeared
and left me in the dark without a clue.

For solace, I began to sing her songs,
for Jesus songs were ones that she adored
and as the notes fell from these lips of mine,
I felt her teaching me about her Lord.

Through her piano keys, she played her part
with melodies that mothered eighteen years.
I now remember every gospel tune.
Each lyric echoes lessons in my ears.

I didn't know that she would leave that soon
and felt so unprepared to be so strong,
But God knew everything and had a plan
for me to grow up leaning on her songs.

Of course I wish my Momma was still here,
but I can't fault the Lord for anything,
for if I want the sun to shine again,
He tells me all I have to do is sing.

I still have her sheet music and hymn book and regularly pick them up and sing. Music is food for the soul and can sustain and give joy to the singer or listener.
