My Yidishe Momme

My mother loved this song.

She sang it to my brother and I after her mother passed away and it's been in my head ever since she left us.

The lyrics are both heartbreaking and describe my mother perfectly.

Tears are streaming down my face right now just typing this out.

I love you mom. I miss you more then anyone will ever know.

My Yddishe momme.

I need her more than ever now.

My Yddishe momme.

Id like to kiss her wrinkled brow.

I long to hold her hand once more.

As in days gone by.

And ask her to forgive me,

For things I did that made her cry .

How few were her pleasures.

She never cared for fashion styles.

Her jewels and her treasures,

She found them in her babys smiles.

Oh I know that I owe what I am today.

To that dear little lady whos gone away.

To that wonderful Yddishe momme.

Momme of mine
