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

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
