no greater love

After she was born, daddy called her “little possum” 
Mama said, “Don’t listen child, you are gonna blossom” 
they never saw her smile 
they said, “It’s not her style” 
When they placed her in the ground, both whispered, “You are awesome”

I confess this flew over my head at first, Then it hit me right smack in the head, how so very very sad. Nicely done poem.
