Comments about Beth Joel
Family is where we belong,
Each member like a thin thread,
That is part of a warm scarf
Around the world's neck.
Sometimes we fall apart, but
Like burning candle wax, someway
We find our way back together.
The mother is that sticky thing,
That holds everything together.
She is that harmonizing voice,
That brings calmness in the eye of hurricane.
She is the strongest human being,
You may never notice it.
She will give up her family and settle half across
The continent to start her own family.
