Tears Of A Warrior


One, moment that changed our lives.
as you told me the news
holding my hand
Two seconds for it to sink in
I let the tears fall
Three days before you left
walking away from us leaving
Four kids
that love you dearly
Five months of training
days that aren't replaceable
Six months pregnant
the birth without the father
Seven people killed
Eight the number of bullets fired
Nine months of carrying
a baby with no father
Ten soldiers at the service
Nine months later
Eight dollars an hour
Seven hours a day
Six days a week
Five children
Four in school
Three years later and I remember
Two seconds
One moment that changed our lives
