I know that my saviour lives and at the end he will stand on this earth My flesh may be destroyed but from this body i will see god Yes i will see him for myself and i long for that moment.... Gran'ma, i really miss you and it ain't been the same I drop a tear when i hear ur name Mary ella holloway why you gotta be so far away? You used to say "Don't worry, it's gone be ok" But it ain't. It's like, when you left, you took the Lord wit you Why could not i come when he came to get you? Damn, i really miss you i had to say it again I remember the time when i was like, ten And crept up in the neighbor's yard, yeah, bein hardheaded You told me that i would get it, you said it! and boy did i get it! But after you spanked me, you hugged me Kissed me on my forehead and told me that you loved me And I saw that it hurt you more than it hurt me I thought how bad could this hurt be? I know now that's why i'm dead outta luv Whut i wouldn't give for one more hug From gran'ma
