Having thrived within love’s protective fence Secured to abide inside serene hedge Nourished along care, surpassing word-pledge My heart bloomed against rudeness-pestilence. Triumphing well over domestic trials Beloved home stood by sovereign grace As parents anchored children with their brace Defying attacks of hate-betrayals. With my beloved family’s presence Virtues have been delightfully nurtured Midst compassion and kindness, so cultured To waft scent of good works and faith’s incense. Cherishing memories of precious bond With beloved parents and siblings dear Oh, I long for moments that we be near Yet such is to come in future beyond. Now sufficing myself with reaching-out Grateful to God for loved ones' priceless grip I keep on treasuring joyous kinship While sharing its wondrous bliss of no doubt.
