Gone

A happy client sent this poem to KLS:
Gone are the little arms and kisses they bestow
Gone are the sweet good nights they only know
Gone are the school events planned every year
Gone is the security each one holds so dear
Gone are the holidays and family traditions
Now they have fear and unusual positions.
Now they have strangers and rules they don’t know
And going back home is dragging by so slow
New schools, new faces, new friends to make
So hard to wait for the extra-long time it takes
They cry sometimes in the middle of the night
Wondering what will be the next horrible fright.
But – wait – Lanis Karnes is a Godsend from on high
She gives hope in the place of wanting to die
She brings her expertise to the table each time
She has her proof in orders and lays it on the line
DCS has never met a lawyer so up on their game
And I guarantee they will never forget her name.
Thank you Lanis
