What she’s lost
Only her sister would know

No mother there to see her success
Nor to see the woman that she
Has become

No father to call now
When she has car troubles
Nor to walk her down the aisle

No parents to be there
When her first child is born
And ‘family’ at Christmas
Will always be incomplete

Another day on the calendar
To you and me
A time of unspeakable sadness
To her
And to her sister

The orphaned
All around us
We should love them
If we possibly can

That much extra
