ORNAMENT OF LOVE

She was just thirteen and so alone

no one to love or call her own

Tatianna was a broken child

she never laughed she never smiled

~*~

At her window for three long years

she gazed upon that tree of tears

She pictured herself hanging there

embracing death her life unfair

~*~

Her brother Tito her own twin

had passed away when they were ten

He's lay to rest beneath that tree

in a shallow grave for eternity

~*~

She longed to see him once again

she lived in fear she lived in pain

As she mourned upon his stone

she heard him crying there alone

~*~

In the darkness he was so afraid

he didn't know it was his grave

From the depths he called to her

not in a whisper not in a word

~*~

But in her heart she felt him say

why did you have to go away

I didn't leave I promise you

then realized what she must do

~*~

Through the branches against the moon

she whispered I am coming soon

So from that tree she hangs above

an ornament of a siblings love

~*~
