The Family (poem)

Within the warm of family

The season’s Joy they’re blessed to see

A time they can together be

And share the year’s prosperity

-

Around a fire they laugh with glee

And raise their glasses gratefully

There in the cold and bitter night

They sing familiar melody

-

With table set so carefully

A family shares a tragic plight

For them there is no Joy in sight

Their places set comfortably

-

With no food for their appetite

They find some shelter mid dim light

They gain some comfort holding tight

They all give thanks for their bounty

-

How did their riches turn to blight

Perhaps the dawn will set thing right

While in the distances songs so bright

Soft tears recall once was delight
