Created in a haze
of another world,
you sheltered him
under a thin veil
of love,
no protection
from the grime
of a greater desire

by your weakness,
an unwanted
legacy remains,
a puzzle unfinished,
never to be

as neglect festers,
so too does love,
for in these times
wishes are granted
and dreams
become reality

Three souls
and from the ruins
of a shattered life,
a family emerges
from the rubble
and life
is renewed.
