A family…
is something to call your own.
Someone there to care for you.
You’re never there alone.
Yet somehow, when you need some time
they give you the world,
then return to shelter you with love,
more precious, a gift, than pearls.
The best thing yet to do,
is to marry and have some kids.
For having a family of your own,
that is what this is.
