Nobody's Little Boy Any More

"Mama, I'll sure miss you."
The son was heard to say
Through a shower of his tears
On the day she passed away.

"You held us all together."
He said, as he sat and cried.
"You handled all the problems
When our Daddy died."

"Who will give me guidance?"
He asked through tearful sighs?
"Who can give me comfort
With a soft look from their eyes?"

"I'll be strong for others."  He said,
Not knowing what's in store
"But Mama I will miss you.
I'm nobody's little boy any more."
