A very young woman full of life
a spirited soul that knew no strife
her life wrapped around two little kids
they were first no matter what else she did
A husband who loved her very dear
no one knew the end was drawing near
too soon she was taken too soon she was gone
the way her life ended was terribly wrong
A horrible man came into her home one frightful day
took her life and then took his the same way
her life ended in an instant and all that was left
was two little children and a husband that wept.
I was the smallest of the two kids
to young to know what that man did
but I often think of my brother with fear
knowing he saw it and the shots he did hear.
Such wrong was done on that horrible day
often times I have wondered many times I have thought
what would have happened if that day had not.
Would we all have had a wonderful life
Dad, Wynona, Jerry, and I.
Would I be anything like her what color was her hair
did we have any talents that we both could share
Did she like sad movies or going to the beach
did she have goals she was trying to reach.
I’ve dreamed of being an artist some day
did my desires come from her was she gifted that way
Would we have gone shopping just for fun
would we share secrets when baking cookies was done
Would she have liked spending time with me
I’ve wondered what kind of person would she be
Her life ended when she was so young
and my life had barely just begun
All these things and so much more
answers I’ve been longing for
I’ll never know because on that horrible day
that evil man took my mother away.
