Family is what our life consists of. 
Our responsibility to it is its success
We must be there when we need too
We must back away when it is right
A listening ear, a hand of help, support if needed
Did not say we have to like it, difficult as it may become. 
But, as the seasons pass, circumstances will not stay the same.  
Stay with each other, not abandoning in sorrowful times
Be good to each other, life is precious and is fleeting.  
Stay in tune with your heart. Take time to reflect 
Give each other space, room to hear your own heart beat.  

Family first is my mode
Family choice I have made
Years ago I chose a family
Years ago I became a family
So family is what I am a part of.  
Blessings and sorrows, joyfulness and pain, laughter and heartache, closeness and apart, 
warmth and coldness, ups and downs and ins and outs.

    I agree that it's all about the family. There will be times when things won’t go the way we would like; however, that’s the process moves on. I like the message and the flow of the poem. It certainly touched on some salient points for life with family members. Great job! ~Joseph
