CYWINK, Susan March 19th 1996
Dear Mom,
Your blood and stubbornness
Run deeply through my veins,
And I still rebel
When they tighten my reins.
I'm still like a fart
Blowin' in the breeze,
And black pepper
Still makes me sneeze.
It's hard being a woman
In this day and age,
It's ever so easy
To turn toward hate and rage.
This bumpy road
We so call life,
Is not without
Consequence or strife.
I'm trying really hard
To never quit,
But the way things are
Who gives a shit?
I'm such a pitiful creature
Totally out of touch
And it's your strength and wisdom
I miss ever so much.
If I can't get into Heaven
Because I screwed things up,
You tell St. Peter
To be wearing a cup.
If I can't get into Heaven
I'm the only one to blame,
I need you to know
I love you just the same.
So, technically,
between the sunshine and the rain,
I'm just biding time,
Until, hopefully, we meet again.
-All my love, Brenda Lee
