Through All Reality
by Susan McLaughlin
Sometimes moments come
When I think that I can see
All that I am meant to
About Family and what it is.
Within the walls of Family
We learn to navigate the waters of life.
In its pure reality it touches the many places
That life calls us to experience.
The love in a family must reach in many directions
And cover many emotions.
It must give and forgive.
Teach and learn,
And grow with change.
Family journeys through the joys and pains of life
And travels through reality.
It is always moving forward
To the next stage and the next time.
Within Family we carry the memory
Of all that has gone before,
And the hope of all that is to come.
Family is love with binding strings,
Entwining us together.
Family is love that bears all things
And sometimes bleeds of love and pain
But its centre runs through our veins
And can never be broken.
