She Is Me

Mary Helen Trujillo 1987 (Colorado)



My path begins where her path ends
She is me…..

Her long gray hair longed to be free
She is me…..

She wept when her story slowed
She is me…..

And I emerged from the chapter
I was born
She was me….

We walk together and alone
She was me…..

Yet her story will be told
She was me…..

I carry it for her now in peace and calm
She was me…..

Til our stories become one
She is me…..
