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
