Family!


A family is a tree
with its branches and leaves.
Come rain, come shine,
it staggers yet lives.

A family is a body
with its head, hands and fingers.
In sickness or in health,
it shivers and lingers.

A family is a world
with its inhabitants, lands and tides.
In pressure and turmoils,
it quakes but abides.

A family is you and I
engulfed in love.
Come what may,
we soar like a dove!

In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
