This poem is my memory of our old home and my family. Share your thoughts on this.
Together we were a family of seven
Mother, Father and us five
Our eldest sister was just eleven
As we buzzed about our hive!
Every Sunday was same as such,
And the day began at just past six,
Coffee, Studies, bath and lunch
Family time and friends to mix!
Father’s earnings was all we had
To meet the needs of all the seven
Thanks to the love of mum and dad
Home for us was second heaven!
A small house could keep us glad
With a tiny little kitchen
A room alone for mum and dad
And the rest for us kittens
It was I recall, on a festive day
When we were sat for dinner
Dad said he had something to say
That would be with us for ever”
“What we have today is quite special,
The wealth of us being together”
“family and love is most vital”
This you must always remember!”
Decades since, those spoken words
Have echoed ever so true
We all live in wealthy abodes
But family meetings are few!
That little house had more charm
Than all the earnings of today
Our family love was ever so warm
That I could give all this away!!
