Family is everything and this is a fact
It's all about the closeness and the pact
Everyone with different attitude and the act
All with their dynamism never forgetting the love
I live for the smiles and the happy moments
The encouraging moments during the down times too
There are no other people I want in my corner than family
Words to uplift and tough love when and where it's needed
The shouts serves as reminders of how much they are valued
Because whoever means so much to you get into your feels more
We all start and end with family and even the wealthiest wants one
You are not too rich not to have one or too poor not to afford one
We all start and end with family because beauty is in the simplest things of life
Everything starts with the family; the virtues and the teachings
I see mama's family and I couldn't help but smile
I smiled from molar to molar, wider than the river Nile
I wish I could save all the pictures in a file
They are one of the bests I could pull out of the pile
I missed being with such a big family...it's been a while
Mama...your family is a reminder of what a big and happy family looks like
Each person showing up for their own and creating memories
Little children running around too...mama...I hope you are telling them stories?
Your smile is infectious and I see how you infected everyone in there
I wish I could give everyone a hug in there as a reminder of what I long for too -
That intimate and happy moment with people that matters
The simplest things of life - family tops that and I am happy for you, mama

This poetry was dedicated to my mama Tiger Lily; DreemSteem after I got to see her lovely family pictures. That's what inspired this post and I told her that I would make a post about this. I shared the poem with her before now too. She's an inspiration in every single way. Love you, mama.

Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
