Cinnamon Brown

Mama don't live here no more
She packed her bags said life had more to offer than me
Before she left she told me to use what I got to get what I want
Whatever that meant
Mama don't live here no more
Daddy says she will be back soon but I see through his lie
My little brother don't know the difference he's only 2
He never hardly seen her anyway
Mama don't live here no more
Its been months since she has
I've forgotten her scent her smile and her voice
I decide to give up hope
Yesterday she called me its been 17 years since she left
Little brother all grown up and me a mother myself
I asked who was on the phone cause I couldn't catch the voice
"Its Mama baby" She said
I laughed a little held back my tears and said
Mama don't live here no more she moved away a long time ago
She took my heart, trust and childhood with her when she left
Today Mama died the mother I never Knew...
