Before I, There Were

family time, up a tree we climb. We run around, falling down to the ground. This is our time we'll spent, turning everything into a big event. At gatherings we eat; anything hot, spicy, and sweet. We all love each other and care, we are not stingy; so we share. The little ones give big hugs and sloppy kisses, to make sure no one misses them too much. Every little boo-boo is cured with a gentle touch. always a fatherly hand at the ready, to help make your life more steady. We may all live in separate houses, but we all care for each other's spouses. Everyone is treated with respect, our love has that certain effect. Together we shine bright, for our love is a beaconing light. My big, happy family sends there love, so there's something to think of.
