She, the only one true, who is lost:
deserted by and gone
beyond, to a place unknown.

She, one step away, who avoids:
distressed and damaged
beyond redemption, stays away.

She, in-law, who is still to come:
wary and afraid,
uncertain and jealous without reason.

She, blood of blood, long awaited:
renewed and perfect,
lineage continued. The wheel turns.
