“In daddy’s arms, I am tall…”  Happy Father’s Day 2014 to all of our strong Black Brotha’s.  May today and all the days to come be blessed with love, faith, patience, understanding and joy.  Know in your heart that you are appreciated and loved.  There is no replacement for you.  Ever.   Stay strong.

This song, “Brotha,” by Angie Stone is dedicated to all of the fathers, godfathers, grandfathers, uncles, and father figures.

“He is my King, He is my one
Yes he’s my father, Yes he’s my son
I can talk to him, cuz he understands
Everything I go through and everything I am
He’s my support system, I can’t live without him
The best thing since sliced bread,
Is his kiss, his hugs, his lips, his touch
And I just want the whole world to know, about my…

Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
Cuz you’re my Black Brotha, strong brotha, there is no – one above ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true…”

“He’s misunderstood, some say that he’s up to no good around the neighborhood
But fo’ your information – a lot of my brothers got education (now check it)
You got ya Wall Street brotha, ya blue collar brotha,
Your down for whatever chillin’ on the corner brother
A talented brotha, and to everyone of y’all behind bars
You know that I loves ya

Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
Cuz you’re my Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you- forever true
Cuz youre my Black Brotha, strong brotha, there is no – one above ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true

You mean so much to me, you give me what I need,
I’m so proud of you (I said I’m so proud of you)
I love you for stayin’ strong, you got it goin’ on
I’m so proud of you (I’mmmmmmmmm)
Going through thick and thin, brothas you gonna win
I’m so proud of you (I said I’m so proud of you)
Whenever you facin’ doubt, brothas gon’ work it out
I’m so proud of you (I got unshakeable faith in ya)

Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
Cuz youre my Black Brotha, strong brotha, there is no – one above ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
Only my Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
Cuz youre my Black Brotha, strong brotha, there is no – one above ya…”

Happy Father’s Day 2014.  Be blessed.
