Did she feel like she was suffocating

While they were dating?

Were they married on the beach?

Could she name a constellation that reminded her of hidden bruised cheek?

A kiss of a bullet to the head,

Left 4 departed, 2 to survive,

God of all that is, on behalf of Shanta, let them thrive, thrive, thrive

Please donate, to support her surviving daughters:
