The sound of laughter filled the rooms,
The pitter-pat of little feet all around,
Silence was allowed inside,
Only by the guard of night....
The children were there,
all different from one another,
but they all had one thing in common,
they had no one-no mother,no father,no brother,no sister.
Yes,they were orphans,with nobody to call as their own,
They were orphans,some with families they've never known,
All with a different past,a different gene,
All with a same future,at least for the time being....
They don't know whether to be happy or sad,
when one of their friends is adopted,
when the friend gets a new family,
but isn't it normal to feel some jealousy?
Young or old,lucky or not,this is their place for a while,
No matter how much they hide,
the sadness of their life,
you can see the want of love,omnipresent in their eyes.....
