Family time
Can make all seem
Like it is alright
But too much
Can make all seem
Like total chaos
Balance is key.

Family time
Spent close
Chatting, eating
And enjoying
So much love
Feeling blessed
To be a part
Of something bigger

Family is perfect
Always seeing each other
Perfectly happy

Christmas time

December 24, 2015

Family time
Celebrated together
The joy of the season
Regardless of weather

Remember those
Who have passed
This eternal time
Where they’ll last

Also those
Less fortunate than you
Who may not have
A family to go to

But most of all
Remember the spirit
Be happy and healthy
And cherish it

Family Time

Moments with family
Cherish them oh so closely
They’re ephemeral

Live it up

One day
Two people
Three years
Four children
Five grandchildren
Six decades
Seven symptoms
Eight hours
Nine lives
Ten mourners

Home Coming

October 11, 2013

The long train ride home
After years of neglect
Brings men to their knees
As they realize their regret.

A dark autumn evening
So many miles simply pass
The years stacked up quickly
Time goes far too fast.

Traveling back to this place
Where a child once played
Makes the regret brew deep
What if we just stayed?

But with every choice made
There are consequences had
Remember all you received
It didn’t turn out so bad.
