Favorite Quote:
Today you are you, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is youer than you.
- Dr. Seuss


They say we share the same blood,
But I have no idea who you are
All I know is your name and that you live very far

I've always been curious,
Dreams about you haunted my youth,
What is it about us that cannot face the truth?

I don't understand how this could happen,
I thought family was supposed to stay together
No matter what the circumstances are, it's supposed to last forever

And I can't ask anyone about you,
Faces become grim and eyes look away,
But I'm still desperately hoping we'll meet each other someday

The author's comments:
To those who have long lost family members and are yearning to meet them
