A Family Is ...

Dear Children,

A Family is...
Where secrets are kept,
And dreams are slept,
And love is the rock to stand on;

Where kisses are doled,
And wishes are told,
And hugs are warm places to land on;

Where happiness rules,
And morals are schooled,
And fun is a priority;

Where “I’m sorry” is heard
And “I can’t” are just words,
And chores trade for sweet liberty;

Where fear is not frightful,
And monsters, delightful;
Where nothing’s lost – everything’s gained.

Where comfort means leaning,
And time has no meaning,
And peace and serenity reign.

With love, Amma - Naana
