As I grow older, I am hesitant to say
In the company of orphans, seems to be my mainstay
We all reach the place where our parents are gone
We're left on the earth, as each one is called Home.

Yes, it gets lonely, to walk in this life
Without them around me - It's often strife
Frustration, confusion, doubt and despair
How I long to find them again, waiting somewhere!!

Yet, in the company of orphans, I find something new
I'm part of a plan, a contingent, a group ----
We all share our problems, our secrets, our joys
We form a new family - not of blood, but of choice!!

In the company of orphans, I learn once again
People can become much more than just friends -----
We share all our trials, speak straight from our hearts
Seems to me I'm surrounded, right from the start

In the company of ANGELS, wearing human attire
We love one another through the lines of a wire ---
Our spirits connect and our hearts intertwine
How grateful I am that God chose to find ---
For me - ANGELS -------
With 'ORPHAN' designs..........
