One Day at a Time

by Tracey Brumfield, Rex Horan, and Sara Lee


A good man, a loving man
His family was his everything
Mesiyah, Keshawn Junior, Pay Pay, Auntie Tina

His sisters were his pride and joy
He was his daddy’s only boy
In white T’s, blue jeans and Nikes

One day at a time
Booman was my sunshine
I never thought I’d go through this
One day at a time.

He came to me on Christmas day
Told me, ‘wipe your tears away
I’m OK, still need you, I love you’

I said to him ‘I got your back,’
Yeah, I still got his back
Could hear him, so near him, almost feel him.

One day at a time
Booman was my sunshine
I never thought I’d go through this
One day at a time.

On the train, my music on
Look at pictures on my phone
I see him, protecting, respecting.

One day at a time
Booman was my sunshine
I never thought I’d go through this
One day at a time.
