i miss our family

i miss our close knit family 
we held together through thick and thin
then our family lost two of its anchors
thats when the drifting first began

mom was the strong and loving kind
four children she raised all alone
sometimes life got rough for us
but mom made our house a home
then one fateful day back in nineteen ninety one
our world fell apart that day 
because one of our anchors was suddenly gone

then our older sister she tried hard to take mom,s place
it was good for a little while 
but soon cancer reared its ugly face
then one day in two thousand and five
mom came to take our sister home 
leaving just a few of us 
to try to just survive

but now as this old year ends
and the new one come with GODS grace
our family is not the same anymore
i hide my tears in disgrace
