Life Without Mom

Erica and Carlos, a couple in love.
The day they become the Morales, a moment of pure bliss.
Vows are exchanged, the air occupied by doves.
Rings that symbolize a love, care, and admiration, it all sealed with a kiss.

Just like the rhym, then comes pregnancy.
Quadruplets, four bundles of joy.
Three girls, one boy, to carry on their legacy.
Unexpectedly, Erica passes, before a birthday or purchased Christmas toy.

A father's happiness gone, an immediate time of mourn.
Kids with no mother, before they could speak her title.
Like paper, death has a family torn.
Support and prayer is now incredibly vital.

One year later, four toddlers, sadness subsiding.
Attempting in life to cope and strive.
Not re-marrying, by their vows, carlos is abiding.
In spite of the hurt, he will "Keep Erica's memory alive."
