The life and times of yours and mine
Mothers young or old the love light shines

Days go by, then weeks and years
And through it all we shed some tears

A child is born or a loved one dies
We gather together with bleary eyes

We live, we laugh, we dance and sing
We celebrate the simple things

A school recital a game a play
A family reunion that lasts all day

Family is the root of the tree
Providing fruit, the shade we need

Family is there when others are not
Mother to mother ready or not

Yes it is and you said it so good in your poem!

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather...not like the passengers screaming in the back of his car.

Looking at 'families' is much like looking at the country...or vice~versa. Both are 'nuclear'.

Loving Linny Jean is poetry.
