Fifth

The word prompt for Terri’s Sunday Stills: Fifth

The fifth of five
a son
nine months before
I went to
a party
with Dad
I came home
with Mum
Always the baby
the spoilt baby
two brothers have gone
two sisters remain
I am
the fifth of five

  1. A wonderful sentiment, Brian. Family is to be cherished because we never know how long we have. My husband’s twin is the fifth child (he birthed last). Their oldest brother passed at 59 unexpectedly years ago. A poignant post and thank you for sharing this for Sunday Stills.
