Trinity (Mama Lived)

Trinity (Mama lived)

by Twinkle VanFleet

3 years old
Sitting on the officer’s lap
Daddy wasn’t there,
The memory still impairs.
Little girl wandering
No one around,
Baby girl pondering
Someone come home.
Where’s mama?
Pained, bruised, all messed up
Tried to take herself out,
Didn’t know what it was all about.
Took little daughter into her arms
I love you, Mama said before she went
Little girl remembers before the decent
Flat line, just in time
To come back to it all again,
Hard life, battered wife
Just couldn’t know it then.
21 gun salute
Young woman watched the ammo fly through the air,
Picked up a shell, couldn’t really bear
Daddy went to heaven, mama left the state
Fate would be sealed,
All those years ago
Would lose them both, never would heal.
Flash backs, no take backs
Destiny became the remedy,
Mama got a new life
She’s a good wife.
Big girl now,
Never had to forgive it
By the trinity that gives
Blessed to know and feel it
Ma ma my mama lives
