Left Alone

When Daddy went away

I didn’t ask why

I just accepted that people go

Or leave, and sometimes die

When my mother disappeared

I didn’t understand

She went for an early walk

They found her in the sands

When my sister left home

She promised she’d call me every day

But one day she stopped calling

And vanished without a trace

When my brother left

I cried for hours and hours

But then, like with the rest of them

I buried him beneath the flowers.
