Family Tie

A gossamer thread

In our lives will embed

Tying us up in a knot

A bond never forgot.


An invisible line

An unspoken sign

Of a heritage shared

Of lives duly cared.


It links like a vein

Love flows in the chain

And time doesn’t alter

Nor miles ever falter.


Not eroded by wear

Or able to tear

And through high and low

It doesn’t let go.


It’s there at the start

And the time to depart

Can’t cause it to rupture

It’s not built to fracture.


This tie that will bind

Will keep us all twined

Hearts joined together

As family forever.
