my mom is priceless

My mama is priceless

My mama is priceless
Beautiful, strong, empowering
Wonderful, lovely in every way
She's my backbone
She's raised me, taught me right from wrong
She's the woman of the house
My mother
My role model
And I love her so
She took me out to see my dates
She have me going to the holidays dances
Yes she's spoil me
And I appreciate her
Cos my mama is priceless
She makes sure I cover up when I go out
Make sure I got money in my wallet when I go shoppin
Make sure my wheelchair stays straight
She embraces me when I had a broken heart
She understands me
And this is my mother
My mother is priceless
She's honest, cool, her wit makes me smile
And some people don't have a mama
Like that
Some children have been abandon, neglecting
When their moms have walked out the door
Some grown daughters still said "mama, I love you"
Even though their mothers' backs are turned and never look at the faces of their children
Cos they are too selfish to realize the sound of
The silent teardrops rolling down
Usin them like crutches, have them abuse or have them becomin men seekin prostitute
My mom was never like that
She was never even close to that
Cos she is priceless
She truly cares
She encourages me to chase after my dreams
She likes to read my poetry
And she's proud I'm doin way better than shit in the past
And nobody has a mother like her
Nobody can pick me up like a toddler for 27 years
Like she does
Nobody buy me clothes and fresh tomatoes and notebooks and pencils like she does
Nobody knows their own daughter better than anything like she does
My brothers and I love her dearly
And she has been around
Takin care of us
She doesn't play games
Puttin the roof above our heads
Food inside our stomachs
Then grandkids came
And became her shadow
Cos she is priceless
So priceless
That her unconditional love
Warms the house
Like a candle
And she is not for sale
We don't sell mom
At a store
She's not for money
Though she like a thousand bucks
In her pockets
She is a friend, a real friend who looks out
For you
Always got your back
Cos my mama is priceless
Just priceless
