For my Dear Sweet Mama who fell asleep in death last night,
just 45 minutes after our last visit together...


SUPER WOMAN
© 2013 Karen Denning

JUST A FEW SHORT WINKS IS ALL SHE EVER GOT
WASN'T MUCH TIME FOR SLEEP 'TWEEN TWO WAITRESSIN' JOBS
SHE TOOK CARE OF GRAND KIDS WHILE HER KIDS RAN AROUND
DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DID IT BUT SHE HELD IT ALL DOWN
MY MAMA WAS A SUPER, SUPER, SUPER WOMAN
YEAH MAMA WAS A SUPER, SUPER, SUPER WOMAN

SHE'D LOOK AT ME WITH LOVE THROUGH THOSE GREEN EYES
NEVER SHED A TEAR BUT I KNEW SHE WAS CRYIN' INSIDE
WE'D WALK TO TOWN WITH THE BABIES IN A STROLLER
A BABY MYSELF BUT I TRIED TO ACT OLDER
TRIED TO BE LIKE THAT SUPER, SUPER, SUPER WOMAN
YEAH MAMA WAS A SUPER, SUPER, SUPER WOMAN

[CHORUS]
SUPER WOMAN
DESPAIR TRIED TO GET HER BUT SHE'D PRAY, PRAY, PRAY
SUPER WOMAN
DEVIL TRIED TO BREAK HER, SHE'D SAY NOT TODAY


I CLUNG TO HER LEFT HAND, GOD HE HELD HER RIGHT
HE LED HER THROUGH THE DARKNESS WITH HIS LOVIN' LIGHT
NOW SHE SLEEPS IN PEACE 'TILL SHE HEARS HER NAME CALLED OUT
I'LL SEE THOSE GREEN EYES AGAIN, YEAH, I HAVE NO DOUBT
I'M GONNA SEE THAT SUPER, SUPER, SUPER WOMAN
YEAH, GONNA SEE THAT SUPER, SUPER, SUPER WOMAN

[REPEAT CHORUS]


I think she would have liked it!

~Karen

Karen,

I am so sorry for your loss.  I know that I don't have to tell you about the hope that we have in Jesus Christ.  May God's loving arms wrap around you now in his comforting grace. 

And yes, I agree with the others that your mother would have loved your tribute to her.

May God bless you, my friend,
Mark

Aww, ~Karen.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.  (I have been wondering how she was.)

You've paid a beautiful tribute to her.  She raised a very talented and compassionate daughter.
