Getting Family Together


Getting together for a grand nephew's birthday party,
family gathering, friends coming, presents laid on a
table for later.
Kids playing games, having fun, taking chances and
playing with their cousins.
A great time had by all, pictures taken, birthday
song sung, candles blown out and presents now being
opened.
Pizza and cake all gone, saying good-bye, hugging
everyone and loading up the car with presents.
Now all going home until the next party coming up
soon.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

But if it had to perish twice,
