Get Rid Of The Advertisements

''LOOK AT ME!''
 
I spied her in the corner of
That dirty little room.
The hair lay limp upon her head...
Her eyes were filled with gloom.

The clothes she wore just looked as though
They never had been new.
And when her eyes at first met mine,
I saw the tears there too.

She started to come over to
The couch to sit by me.
Her eyes spoke volumes as they said
''Please someone...look at me!''

The mother spoke, ''Ya want that one?''
I scarcely could believe.
She gave all ten of them away,
As though she were relieved!

Her mister said that she could come
To be with him this day.
But not those kids....they had to go,
Before she walked away!

My Mom and Dad picked up the bag
That held one tiny dress.
And from that day she lived with us,
And I had me a Sis!
***

This is the true story of my sweet sister.
