MY FAMILY, MY LOVE!

Even thou i was created; i was born
into a world lone and to sojourn
through my path and destiny unknown
and yet this time i came,to me was not known
i shuddered at the warm embrace of love
of my guardians destined from above
the warmth of my mothers cuddles of care
and to deny my fathers joy i wont dare
i opened my eyes to see my siblings smile
and in the smiles were echos of happiness
and i felt the orphans sadness
and those family without
and i knew i was blessed, i shout
with laughter for i see
the fount of togetherness be
my family;my love; my gain
for with them i feel safer
Even though i work through paths lone
my joy…im never alone.
