Such an unexpected family tragedy

she was not prepared.

To lose her husband after a few years

they had been so in love.

A really happy couple it was said

now he was dead!


Born him their daughter two years before

but they had got very close.

Making sure they were financially secure

but now alone in her prime.

Soon met a man didn’t want to be alone

had her vulnerability shown?


Waited for a while until her pain had eased

before getting married again.

With her daughter had such a close bond

who loved her father so much.

Jade seemed far older than her five years

between them still shed the tears.


Then by this man their first child was born

as time went on tension grew.

This was his flesh and blood not a step child

it was a different atmosphere.

The savings to were used up and now gone

knowing it was so wrong.


Grandparents concerned at what had gone on

what could either of them do?

Worried for their daughter and grand child

all they could give was support.

How many others are in the same position

who are hiding this omission?
