Taking My Parents Home

Updated on July 25, 2012

I went up to the mountain
To take my momma home
I went up to the mountain
To take my pappa home

Both laid to rest
Alive together
In death alone

I looked at the marker
Placed on each grave
Life once so secure
Now never the same

A sprinkling of tears
A few parting words
I said my goodbyes
It didn't seem enough
For all they did for me
All during my life

I'll miss you momma
I'll miss you pappa
I know the days without you
Will be somewhat sad
But I'll carry your love
Deep within my heart
I'll hold my head high

For I know one day
When my life passes
I breathe my last breath
I will stand beside you
In our eternal rest

I went up to the mountain
To take my momma home
I went up to the mountain
To take my pappa home
