Mama’s Last Breath


Mama’s Last Breath

“Mama’s Last Breath”



Something about that morning just wasn’t right…
it seemed too calm…
something was wrong…


I was going to chill that day…
but you’d been in ICU for a week..
I knew that you wasn’t promised to stay..
As I stood there and stare as you lay..
I’m hurt, because the only thing I could do was pray.


I was putting the finishing touches to my drawing of you..
Going back and forth to and from the picture to your bed…
Then I heard beeeeeeep and the screen said… _______________________


Doctors rushed in…
I was forced out…
God rushed in…
Took you to His house…


By the time they let me back in..
Your spirit was with the wind..
But you wore this smile on your face..
that said I will see you again..


And I cried..
and cried..
till there was no more tears to be shed..
As I stood by your bed..
Placed a kiss on your forehead..
I always wanted riches..
now I would just take you instead..
Because I miss you..


I Love you from the soul with everything I have left..


I love you past life…
I love you past death….
I love you through the Spirit and anything else


But Damn…
I can’t seem to let go of that vision of you taking your last breath….

I'm Marvel Saffold, I'm a Witblogger out of Riviera Beach, FL. I'm also a Rapper, many years ago I wasn't aware of the power of literature. Specially my literature, until I started exploiting writing in different format--from music to poetry. Having made that transition--I even surprised myself many of times. The real kicker is I tasted the power prior--in the 9th Grade. I will forever love Ms. Saunders, my English Teacher at William T. Dwyer; because it was then, in her Class that I started mastering writing literature. Years later I'm finally realizing how much of an influence Her Class had in my writing process even in music. I found myself using all that I've learned from Ms. Saunders. I love writing no matter what it is.
