We are here on earth for but a short time
So I thought the way to share my love was in the letter
Filled with a summation of love, memories that makes us feel better
instead of hurtful words that destroy and we are never fine.
I see our generations in this family of mine today
We can be stubborn and push each other away to survive
However we are accomplished, loving and giving from what others derive
If we could only communicate we would be okay.
Change the quarrel of yesterday and accept each other
Building towards the future dreams for each other
Putting our faith in God and support for one another.
May this letter in poetry state the love for my family line
I am humbled by my birth, upbringing and life given to me
My prayer is we can take off the face of sadness, anger and forgive to be free
No more blame but step show acts of love and acceptance would be a great sign.
So this letter is an admission life is short glimmer of light
Admit we will never be perfect and love each other as we are
You never know with the proper example in our family we could have many a rising star
We could have peace once again and forget who is right.
