Bryson Tiller took to social media on Sunday morning to mourn his grandmother with a heartfelt and heartbreaking post.
The Grammy-nominated recording artist was raised by his grandmother after his mother passed away when he was just four-years-old.
Like most grandmothers, she was hard on Bryson and he admitted that he resented her for that.
But, today, after her passing, the singer now realizes he has “lost the most important woman” in his life and he is now living with regret.

today i realized i lost the most important woman in my life. as i type this.. i’m also realizing that i never acknowledged you as the most important woman in my life nor did i treat you that way. i didn’t call as much as i should’ve. i didn’t do as much as i could’ve.
you and i have always had a love-hate relationship and about a year ago i remember saying to someone: man i really need to be there more for my grandma regardless of what we’ve been thru because i don’t know how long you’ll be around. today is the first time i find myself only thinking about the good and not the bad. I’ve never lost anyone really close to me before, i’ve never understood how it felt.. i lost my Mother at a very young age so i couldn’t really process what was happening.
Today is the first time i carefully read the letter you wrote me 4 years ago and i tried my hardest not to get tears on it or let it blow away in the wind. I took it out of my important-things-box weeks ago and i told myself i needed to read it again carefully but i never got around to it. i ended up cleaning my room and putting it back in the box. in the letter your words were: im sorry i was so hard on you guys growing up, it was just really hard as a single parent taking care of you after your mom passed, i hope you don’t have any resentment towards me, im so proud of what you’ve accomplished”
Maamaw im so sorry ? today i let go of any resentment i ever had towards you and im sorry i EVER complained about ANYTHING you couldn’t do for me. I love you so much and i wish i read this letter sooner because i would have called you to tell you that i promise i would have.
a few months ago i bought you a car after you asked me for a year straight but i always told you to wait until i got back on the road to start making money again. something told me to just go get that car anyways because i knew how bad you wanted to leave the house. im so glad i did because that was the happiest i’ve seen you in a long time.
im sorry i didn’t bring Harley around more. im sorry you never got to meet Kelly. I love you and i forgive you for everything and im sorry i never got to tell you.
In a second post, Bryson Tiller wrote:
i’ll see you soon Maamaw ??you hated how much i doubted myself and i promise i will never do that EVER again. no matter how many people doubt me. im just so glad you got to witness it all before you left.
i forgot i had this video but it felt so good to hear you say i love you once more. i’ll stop here guys i promise. but man i think it’s important for anyone reading this who can relate to my last post to go call that one person and talk about it right now. none of it is worth it in the end.

I pray God replaces his regret with peace and understanding.
Tomorrow isn’t promised. Whatever issues you have with loved ones – fix it while you can.
