Losing an Extended Family

When my parents divorced,
My extended family became two.

I was still a part of both,
But on separate occasions.

When my stepfather left,
I lost his extended family permanently.

I never heard from them again.
I can only imagine, I never will.

Losing a family isn’t painful.
It does hurt, though.

And I can only imagine,
It always will.
