@61 A Kid

Like a flash you emerged as the third child
then I took your leave
Years lapsed you grew
about you I never knew

Got married
had kids twins
a girl and a boy
all were happy
but your doctor hubby
said one is mine,
the other's whose
he abused and kicked you

Out of court you separated
then what was there to do

Nothing

to save your image and protection
your brother got you married
to his subordinate

No sex no kids
No legal hassles
Life again moved on

The other day they told me you had been widowed
Later, after a few days
you had become a grand mom
Life came to a standstill

I hadn't met you dear niece
all I can say now
move on time again will heal
‘twill my dear
you are just a kid @61
for me
