Mama Said So
You knew to never ask why you couldn’t go. You knew you would find something to do if you just stayed home.
The cut on your knee, you knew would heal.
The lightening bolts resounding outside your bedroom window late into the night you knew would not hurt you.
You knew your dying favorite pet would go to Heaven.
Your heartaches would fade and the laughter would return. This also you knew.
You knew…….because mama said so.
