A home without laughter from the loved ones of your extended family?
A home without the joy of births, babies, pain, and joy?
A home without grandparents, aunts, uncles, oma's, opa's, cousins, brother in laws, and sister in laws?
A home without the comings and goings of those who love you most, will take advantage of you the most, and who you can take the most advantage of?
A home without an extra kind word from someone close enough to care when you just don't have the extra kind word in you?
A home that sighs at the happiest of occasions because of the people that are missing in it?
A home that drops tears silently at night, in the morning, and in between?
A home that would prefer the tears to be silent rather than be comforted?
This is our home, at least the part of me that is this home.
