Margarita Lived in a Cave

My great grandfather lived part of his life
in a cave
in Mexico
as an orphan.

Living within rock walls
he learned
Loneliness kills men.

Later he met my great grandmother
had five daughters
two sons
and more animals
than anyone knew what to do with.

Those children then had children of their own
and now there exsists a third generation
of children who know the story

Of an orphan
Who was never alone again
Until his dying day.
