Family and Togetherness

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.


I take a deep meditation and look at the things of the world

Fancy cars, big money buildings with Executive Jobs.

None seem to shine brighter than having love for Family.

The human bond, the unbreakable circle in which Lord thy God has placed us.

When you lose your Earthly possessions, the girls, men, fancy car and the money

One thing you can count on o be there is your family.

When you cannot find the next meal

And your friends disappear, but families remain, the ones that are real

When their faith is open and loud

And their prayers lift you up through the thickest of crowd

When you are under the energy of sickness

Family will hold your hand and help to lift you up when all others scatter away

So God of Elijah, today, hear me pray

Protect, heal and guide my family

Keep them safe, hold their hands as we trample disruptions and emit Godley energies.

I miss my family, all gone now, just Bev and I at home, two dogs, one cat, children grown with families of their own....the best memories I have are of my family, me a kid, feeling the love. :)

You've said it! The importance of family. May we not misunderstood of having them, specially the youths-your purpose is not to become a burden of them.

Have a great day Clive!
