Happy Gathering of friends and family laughter coming from all directions and sides
Talks of upcoming anniversaries birthdays and showers
Endless toast with Champagnes and smiles
Followed by congratulations and cheer and happy tears
No one notices the unsmiling heartbroken face
The silent tears from the back of the room
Moments earlier question was asked “When are you going to have kids?”
Was there a thought or maybe she couldn’t?
Quick exit out of the back door
Vanished Without a Trace
