Poem: Loyalty Makes Family

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Loyalty Makes Family" is a poem describing how blood might make you related, but it doesn't make you family.

A family member is one who stands beside you offering a helping hand. One who is willing to go the distance when times get tough.

So many times, we see relatives who don't take the time to visit, but then bicker after a family member passes away showing blatant disrespect to the one person who was there.

This only shows the regret they feel inside their hearts.

Loyalty Makes Family

When the darkness creeps in
I know I’m lucky
to have a special bond
with the one who holds my hand
though the thick and thin,
whose loyalty is not pretend.

When the chips fall down
with no blood relatives to be found,
I know how fortunate I am
to have a special family
that won’t let me down,
promising not to leave
even though I must say goodbye.

Facing these final days is hard
as we look forward to so much,
but I know how lucky I am
to have a good girl by my side.

Have No Regrets

Once again, I have witnessed the demise of a family with their uncaring remarks.

Others should be thankful their loved ones had someone with them during the end of their lives.

Especially when they themselves were not there.

Regardless of the reasons, he only realizes they are not here when he needs them the most.

Time goes on, but the regret lingers in one’s hearts forever.

Please don't let this happen to you. Take time to be there for the ones you love.

But if you find yourself being the only one who seems to care, have no regrets for God put your footsteps there for a reason.

Stay strong. You will survive.

Praise God for each and every moment you were given.

Don't take them for granted. Make each one count.
