Take One Day At A Time

We take one day at a time
As we stroll through the years
Life is not always easy
There are problems that bring tears

Our families work together
We all do the best we can
We welcome the new babies
To our fertile and treasured land

We truly love our grandparents
And learn from them so much
We are taught to respect our parents
For they teach with a ‘sturdy’ touch

Our aunts, uncles and cousins
Also make us the people we are
We try to keep in touch with them
For some live so very far

We grow up and have our own families
A new life is what we find
Then we teach the new generation
To take one day at a time!

    What a poem with a message! Well versed, well expressed. Yes, this is the root of life. We are all born out of these roots. We are indebted to our past generations. We owe a responsibility to hand over the treasure to all future generations. Well done! 10+

    A lovely piece. There's nothing as important as the bosom of a family. Some families are small some are large, all our necessary. Ialso enjoyed the rythmn and rhyme in here.
