Orphan Child

by Samuel De Lemos

Bereaved child
of parents past,
made in the image
of The Almighty.

You’ve befriended
my son and
befriended me.

In the Scheme of

the ways things go;

We’re honored to
be surrogate parents.

And, stand up
for your cause-

it’s not only what
God commands.
But, what
I desire to do
for you.
