When I lost my grand-mother
I lost my perfect little nest
My main source of attention

So ironic
Being the eldest
In a family of six

Now the little ones
Were getting the attention
And rightly so

I was on my own to grow up
And figure it all out
I often felt I was in the way

I kept busy and out of sight
It would have been ideal
To learn how useful I could be

Caring for kids giving mom a break
Teaching them how to write
Or reading bedtime stories

Instead I have so few memories
Of what should have been 
The best years of my life

How sad and how ironic

Ah, Line, the oldest of six. Wow! That is a big responsibility; I cannot even imagine.

Thanks for your much appreciated visit and comment, Caren. The normal family is not that big these days.
