Poem by Scott Havard researcher of the Laster Family.

My Mamma's Love

Somtimes at night when its all quite and still and I want to excape from heart ache and sorrow.                                                               
I think of the yesterdays and push out the tomarrows.
Back when I was a small boy and times seemed easier filled with adventure and joy.
A time when the day would turned into night and my biggest concern was being tucked in tight.
I would lay in my bed and hear that old house creak, an I'd get ta tossing and turning unable ta sleep.
Every small child knows that when a house pops in the night.
A new monster is born under the bed just out of site.
But I learned very young I did not have to worry
Cause when my momma walked in all them monsters would scurry.
I knew nothing in the world could ever take me ta harm.
Mommas smile and soft words made me feel safe and warm.
There in that bed with blankets pulled all up ta my ears.
I slept sound, cause my mommas love chased away any fears.
