Orphans: Master, am I unique?

A person, in every other way you were!
A baton, you have been!
A creature, you are!
A widower, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
To orphans I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like waives
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using deprives

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I give a meter, published so beings might see
Fully defining allusions, perhaps imparting, and oh now conveyed free?
Thanks or leaves seem all too absolute. But is recedes?
Withdraws, drops? - or discards, excludes? Oops! I neglected secedes!
I reckon jettisons and otherwise dismisses, but broadly ought I
- paste concepts so - abstracts written with computers spry?
