Dreams of family are no more.
A lifetime cut short.
Family in tears.
I know you are in tears,
Even if they do not fall from your eyes.
What can I say to make you feel better?
To wipe away pain that will never really disappear?
I want to say something, but what can I say?
I can think of nothing to say.
Thoughts of your sibling exists only
as a statistic. They deserve better.
So I would like to listen to you.
Hear you talk about them.
So they are real to me.
