Father and Child

The love of a father

is cherished by all

no matter how old

nor child is too small.

For when his smile appears

and his eyes twinkle with joy

it makes not a bit of difference

to a girl and/or a boy!

The love of a father

is all that one needs,

and it’s the love of a father

that each one of us sees.




Every Family

There is no greater love

than that of a family

a gift given,

through birth

through friendships,

through loss,

over long periods of time,

short periods of time

a bond that’s elastic

stretching when needed

solid when idle.
