Treasure Island

Gordon Jerome


FAMILY


A family begins with the joining of two souls
and in each others arms it faithfully grows
a family is more than simply living together
it offers you shelter from lifes foul weather
a family will help you with whatever it cost
for to them you should never ever feel lost
a family shall be there in your hour of need
its a simple but well tested unwritten creed
a family will never simply turn you astray
they will help until exhausted in every way
a family has a bond within all that they do
its what holds them together like I am to you.
'closing thought'
Regardless how far you may have chosen to roam
there will always be a place for you back at home

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
