I Miss You

.


I did not know you….

we became a family

in very small steps



                         I was very young...

                         you never overwhelmed me

                         with your eagerness



                                                                When my mother died

                                                                 you wrapped your arms around me...

                                                                 you became my own

    Awww shucks, this is so sweet Carrie. You gave the whole in-laws topic a positive spin, which is actually quite different from a lot of the other entries....not all of them; but a lot of them haha!
