Where Do We Go From Here?

Lyrics by Latoya Guider and Natasha Jenkins
Music by Ron Barnes

Saxophone Intro

Where do we go from here, Mama?
Some expect us to part without a single tear, Mama.
They say the love you share will last forever more.
I can't see it but maybe it's because my heart is so sore.
I close my eyes and think of you, Mama.
You knew the times when I was sad and blue, Mama.
You gave me hope to get beyond my despair.
But you never spoke of a time when you would not be there, so

Where do we go from here, Mama?
Oh Jesus, why couldn't we see her time was so near.
Some even say you're watching us from up above.
So I try to picture you as a beautiful white dove.
You were as pure as they come, Mama.
Now our Heavenly Father has taken you back where you came from.
So tell me, Mama, now where do we go from here?
How do we live without the one who was so dear?
The love you gave to us can never be replaced.
Yet the pain of you leaving us can never be erased, so

Where do we go from here? We really don't know.
One thing is sure; it's time to let your body go.
There are some things we will remember well.
That is your love, your spirit and even your smell.

It seems like just yesterday I talked to you. Now we're alone.
I would have had more to say if I knew God was calling you home.
Walk with her, Lord. Dry her tears when she cries.
We never had the chance to do it because we didn't say
Mama, good-bye.
