Home Coming

Family

Family is the inter-workings of our favorite book

The nearly forgotten pages of you

Stories you’ve heard a thousand times

Starting with “You remember when you”

and quick rebuttal “how bout the time you”  

A constant trying to one up the other

But ending always the same way

A laugh, a smile, and a closeness

 

Family is a bond that can not be broke

our history in fleshed

Whether the memories are good or bad

They are responsible for who we have become

The way we see the world

and the way we are able to love one another

 

From a Mother’s magical kiss

that was able to make even the worst wound feel better

To a Father’s strength

Where there was no place safer then in his arms

And Sibling’s devotion

Shared secret that remains secret even still today

These are small parts that come together to make a family

 

As we get older and travel our own paths

There is always something we each carry with us

Our family and the lessons we learned

Unfortunately we to often don’t appreciate them until their gone

So I ask you to stop and think about the ones you love

Because in the end all we have is our family

What a wonderful look at the importance of family...

Stories you've heard a thousand times
Starting with "You remember when you"
and quick rebuttal "how bout the time you"

isn't that the way, to share stories that have bonded you together, and you never get tired of reliving them cause it reminds you of just how special they make you life.

I think you summed up "Family" well. We were not just dropped off, but were given life by two people, who we know as family. There is a lot in this world that can get us down but in the end, and you are right, all we have is family. Thanks for this truly brilliant writing. K

Sadly this doesn't describe all families, but it should. Perhaps someday when we as a human family have learned all the lessons we need to learn it will be like this for all families and we will never take blessings such as these for granted.

Two minor dings:

"Family is a bond that can not be broke (should be broken not broke)

our history in fleshed" (should be flesh not fleshed)

Brilliant as always. :)
