A smile covers the face of a boy from a broken home,

He does not know what a happy family is, 

Yet he knows happiness better than anyone else,

He is the happiest of the most miserable.


At night he dreams of having a family that cares,

But when he wakes up he knows that it was nothing but a dream.


At school he sees other children hugging and kissing their parents goodbye,

He wonders the feeling of being seperated of someone who loves you. 

He wants someone to talk to but he knows that his thought was idiotic.


He wants to be loved,

To be cared for,

To know what the word family really means,

To have someone to go to in times of distress,

But he knows that he will never get this chance.
