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 replacable  

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
