Family

Well happy birthday to you,
With all of your new friends.
Oh wait…
There aren’t any.

I may sound bitter,
But you should have known,
You can’t turn your back on us,
We’re irreplaceable.

You chose the ‘better life’
And climbing your social ladders,
Over the ones who had been there all along,
And where has it got you?

On this very special day,
Who is there for you?
Who is helping you celebrate?
Making you feel like you belong.

We could have been,
But you left us.

Lots of love,
The Family you used to have.
