All About Nine

After my youngest brother, we were family of nine,
my mama and daddy, five boys and two girls.
I thought I would have those loving folks forever
until they started leaving.  Now only Sis and I
survive with all the memories of that strong family.
I have children and grandchildren whom I deeply love.
but they don't share the memories of long ago.
I'd like to be transported back to that family
for just 9 days perhaps, to relive fond memories.
