Lyrics to Forever by Verseatile
I miss my mama’s cooking, but I miss her laughter more, when we would joke while I push her cart inside the grocery store/ we weren’t the richest or the poorest in our neighborhood, but we moved a lot and there were times when we weren’t doing good/ so many times when there wasn’t enough food to go around for 2 people, she would try to feed me most of it, and she would only smile and try to make the most of it, I never committed crime for her but damn, I was so close to it/ oh, we had humble beginnings but we were rich in love, and I can’t ever recall when I was neglected of/ a loving parent, ‘cuz she made it apparent, trying to hug and kiss me in the mall with everyone staring/ Mom, you’re living proof that God is real when we pray together, and I love the fact that we would pray to focus on forever/ I’m turning 30 soon, but I’ll always be your baby boy, I love you, Mom, and that is something that I say with joy.
Forever in my heart, this is for my family, my friends, and my loved ones. Every day that we’re apart, I pray God will keep you near Him ‘cuz He thinks that you’re awesome. Are you smiling for me now, if you’re not don’t lose hope ‘cuz it means that we’re not done. Whenever life gets hard, don’t forget that you are loved, let’s look forward to the next one.
You’ve been around ever since I was a child, and you had a hand in raising me, I hope that you are proud/ of who I am today, I’m a better man because of you, I know that we’re not technically blood, I thought it wasn’t true/ but it doesn’t matter, ‘cuz I love you regardless, you’re the reason why I believe that the home’s where the heart is/ out of all the family members, I think you had the hardest, and I thank you for supporting me for being an artist/ Grandma, you are the sweetest lady that my world has ever known, you always took my side even when I was in the wrong/ I miss the days when I would visit you and sleep over, and stay up watching Cinemax while I drink soda/ my heart was broken when I heard that you had diabetes, ‘cuz you couldn’t eat the tasty things that you would try to feed me/ I know your memory is fading but I pray to God, you’ll remember the joy in Him, it’s the pain you forgot.
