a motherless child

my mother died yesterday.......a very peaceful....quiet....passing. as much as we'll miss her we're all so thankful for this blessing because with lung cancer she was headed down a long path of suffering. we're gathering these next few days to celebrate her life. my mom.....who was a YA YA before ya yas were cool! sometimes i feel like a motherless child
sometimes i feel like a motherless child
and sometimes i feel like a motherless child
a long...long way...from home
and sometimes i feel like i'm almost gone
sometimes i feel like i'm almost gone
sometimes i feel like i'm all alone
a long...a long way... from home

who’s got a shoulder when i need to cry
i feel restless and i don't know why
cry for help, but still feel alone
like a motherless child a long way from home
lord i'm lost i can't find my way
i'm dealing with the struggles in my day to day
my soul is weak and i wanna be strong
i try to run away but i've been running too long
i've been running to long... i've been running to long
like a motherless child so lost and so long
like a motherless child

sing it.....john legend..........

I'm so sorry for your loss. Even though it is a blessing that your Mother is no longer suffering, you must bear the grief for earlier times. Linda

Blessings to you and your family. I don't look forward to the passing of my mother, but I wouldn't want her to suffer either. Happy and sad all at the same time. Love the Ya Ya picture! What a beauty:)
