To My Family With Love
By Anna C. Butler
The love of this family can show the work of God
To prevail over our weakest of moments
To lend a hand or mend a broken heart.
To cry or laugh with one another shall always be
Embraced with open arms and a smiling face.
Times they are tough, but alone you will never be
To have the love of this family
It’s as easy as One, Two, Three.
The joy of a birth, to watch a little life grow
Are memories to cherish that we will never let go
The pain of a death, the emptiness felt inside,
The family is all here, no need to hide
Over the years our surroundings have changed
Now God has blessed us with a little James.
May our daughters grow into little women
They better all remember my sweet baby lemon.
To be so lucky to have a family like this
When we all get to Heaven, God deserves a big kiss.
In our souls, minds, and hearts
May this family never be torn apart
The love of this family has shown me the work of God
To realize this gift for the world to see, how much my family cares for me
May our love grow and carry on even long after we are all gone
Thank you to my family for the love that you all show
Every good deed God will surely know.
