No.20

Let’s make this house

into our home

as a symbol

for all to know.

Here’s a family,

our hearth and throne,

where we return

though far we roam.

.

Let’s make children

and watch them grow.

Teach them the things

that they should know.

Leave us hoping

one day they’ll phone;

place feels empty

just us at home.

.

Count the winters,

rejoice the Spring,

another year

of newborn things.

Met our grandchild

so bright and bold,

she’s living proof

we’re getting old.

.

Fill our summers

with newfound things

leave unbroken

what time won’t mend.

Seek your counsel,

My wife and friend.

In this together

Until the end.

.

Picture faded,

‘cept in my heart;

we’re still together

though we’re apart.

Kids surround me,

they fill this room;

can’t live forever,

I’ll see you soon.

.
