They don’t believe that you are real.

They think I made you up since
I can’t share pictures and information
about you.

I tell them is a casualty of the job.

They turn and laugh and say I’m pathetic
to have to lie about someone being in their lives.

I would love to walk up and scream of
the pride and strength you show everyday.

Making sure we can take a breath another day.

But I am one of many who’s loved ones
have to live in the shadows to survive.
