I Have Three



I Have Three
By
Lisa A.Williams


I have three daughters-
 old souls
 of
my being.
In their company,
peace comes easy
as I look into our shared blue eyes.
We talk of history,
of rights and wrongs
the world has committed
 in all her glory.
We wipe each others tears
when life has dished out
more than we think
we can bear.
We hold each others hearts,
precious beatings that they are,
blood remembering
of how they were all
once shared in a dark tide
of understanding.
I love them more
                                                                 than they will ever know.
