So still those old swings remain.
Breaking that silence
Are mothers long wails of pain –
There’s not a child left to play.

Surrounded by those of blood –
With kin, yet alone.
Only accepted with friends;
Friends – they’re family she chose.
To the own family I chose…you’re small but I love you guys and wouldn’t have it any other way! 🙂

Sleep eludes her for,
Sunrise brings with it much change.
She tries to be brave
Knowing that even the worm
Must face the unknown to fly.

In love they once were
So that photograph would say.
But their love had died.
So she burnt the reminder…
Was reborn as ashes fell.
