This for you, there ain't one day that go by
Where I don't think about you, yeah
This for my mother, rest in peace
To you and yours, yeah, ride with me, come on

I know you watching me, guiding me
I know from up there it's like you watching 'Menace to Society'
Listen you was thirty-two I was only nine
But I've learned so much with so little time

Now I'm surrounded by the best of my kind, we pulled it all together
Couldn't waste your pearls on swine ma, you taught me better
You can't protect me or expect me to not struggle an' fight
'Cause see death is a part of life

What I wouldn't give for one more day wit you
One last embrace and face to face wit you
Explain everything that made me what I am a grown man
From the ground up with my own hands

Will I forget you? Never
Down right angry sometimes that we ain't here together
You can feel your roots and see how strong we are
Who would've thought we could get this far? Damn I miss you

Even though I know it's been tough
I can't stress enough no matter what, mama I love you
You've always been there by my side
You've taught me the wrong from the right, mama I love you

Yesterday was your fifty-ninth birthday
Time flew missing you in the worst way
I still feel the same pain since the first day
You left to death on God's request

I can't complain through the years mama I've been stressed
Through the bullets and the bad times I've been blessed
For the times that I fail but I tried my best
Able to do for my loved ones is real success

Your the source of my strength I was blessed with your gifts
Your insights, your wisdom, your penmanship
Fun an' games, I'm doing thangs, I know you wouldn't agree with
What I drink, what I smoke, who I be with

You made sure I got some love when there wasn't none
Opened up my heart showed the world where I'm coming from
Your little grandson is just like your little boy
Mama what you built here no man can ever destroy, your bundle of joy

I've been through so much
I lose touch and sometimes I feel that life sucks
My woman try to get close I push her away
She wanna talk I just sit there with nothing to say

Feel me, it's all the pain I contain on the inside
You in the right place but left me at the wrong time
Used to cook, clean, and sing me to sleep
Now I only go to bed with my heat, damn I miss you

Even though I know it's been tough
I can't stress enough no matter what, mama I love you
You've always been there by my side
You've taught me the wrong from the right, mama I love you

The school of hard knocks where I learned life's lessons
With not enough answers and too many questions
When you had me you gave birth to a soldier
Now I'm much older, now the world much colder

Our lives in the hands of politicians that don't care
We ponds in the game biological warfare
The family's so spread out an' disconnected
Trying to hold things together put my soul on records

It's hard, you know your daughter had a baby too
A beautiful baby girl just another little piece of you
Another branch we can add to the family tree
Responsibility bringing out the man in me

You ain't a man if you're not taking care of home
Raise and protect my own, until they full-grown
No matter how much these streets try to change me
I'm never gon' forget how you raised me, I love you, forever

Even though I know it's been tough
I can't stress enough no matter what, mama I love you
You've always been there by my side
You've taught me the wrong from the right, mama I love you

Yeah, all the mothers, all the daughters, yeah, come on
Sun, moon, earth, yeah, this for you, damn, damn I miss you
