Crazy Joy, When I See the Eyes of my Baby Boy


From the first time the doctor placed you in my arms
I knew I’d meet death before I’d let you meet harm
Although questions arose in my mind, would I be WOman enough?
Against wrong, choose right and be standin up
From the hospital that first night
Took a hour just to get the carseat in right
People drivin all fast, got me kinda upset
Got you home safe, placed you in your basonette
That night I don’t think one wink I slept
As I slipped out my bed, to your crib I crept
Touched your head gently, felt my heart melt
Cause I know I loved you more than life itself
Then to my knees, and I begged the Lord please

Let me be a good daddy, momma, all he needs
Love, knowledge, discipline too
I pledge my life to you


Everytime I look at you I think man, a little big thigh me
Just like me
Wait an see gonna be tall
Sometimes I wonder, what you gonna be
A General, a Doctor, maybe a MC pastor
Haha, I wanna kiss you all the time
But I will test that butt when you cut outta line,
Crazy joy, when I see the eyes of my baby boy
I pledge to you and God, I will always do
Everything I can
Show you how to be a man
Dignity, integrity, honor
And I don’t mind if you lose, long as you came with it
And you can cry, ain’t no shame it it
You was conceived in love
So if the world attacks, and you slide off track
Remember one fact, I got your back

It’s a full-time job to be a good momma
You got so much more stuff than I had
I gotta study just to keep with the changin times
But yo, ain’t nuthin promised, one day I’ll be gone
Feel the strife, but trust life does go wrong
But just in case
It’s my place
To impart
One day some girl’s gonna break your heart
And ooh ain’t no pain like from the opposite sex
Gonna hurt bad, but don’t take it out on the next, son
Throughout life people will make you mad
Disrespect you and treat you bad
Let God deal with the things they do
Cause hate in your heart will consume you too
Always tell the truth, say your prayers
Hold doors, pull out chairs, easy on the swears
You’re living proof that dreams do come true
I love you and I’m here for you

taken from the lyrics of Just the Two of Us by Will Smith

This song actually brings tears to my eyes when I hear it.

When my baby, bubbaboy young man is away from me, I miss him fiercely.

He drives me crazy but I love him like no other.

God, please help me and his dad to grow this boy up to be a godly man, to respect others, to love all, to marry a good woman, and honor You all the rest of his days.

And when I am tempted to screw him up by my own sinfulness {which can be quite often}, please override me, humble me and sanctify me.

Despite all my shortcomings as his momma, bless this boy.

Love you Jesse
