A family meeting full of tension
Father afraid to mention
The mistake he had made
Many years ago that brought us to this day
"You have an older sister."
He was reluctant to say
A secret long kept.
Mother wept.
Eighteen years ago.
Evil grandmother wanted no one to know.
What her precious son had done.
So money was paid and the girl was gone.
