Ms. Burnece Brunson – Age 98
Who will sing our songs when we are gone?
When we are gone who will sing?
Who will keep our songs from vanishing?
Who will lift each voice and sing out loud?
Who will hold their heads high and stand tall and proud?
Who will learn from lessons that our songs ring true?
Who will clap their hands and pat their feet?
Who will nod their heads to our rhythms beat?
Who will go to the mountain top and tell it from there?
Who will spread our history everywhere?
Who will preserve the chronicles that we have compiled?
Who will never have to feel like a motherless child?
Who will overcome the trails of their day?
Who will triumph above obstacles in their pathway?
Who will trust in their own visions by remembering our past?
When we are gone who will make our songs last?
