Family Tree

Post  Irv Everett on Tue 21 Sep 2010, 2:33 pm

Family Tree

All the leaves are falling
From my family tree
All are bare branches
Except brother, sister and me

Our family photos remind us
Of memories we hold most dear
Evoking precious stories
Of past times and past years

Itís hard to recapture the love
Past family members did bring
Quiet moments haunt us
And their memories tug heartstrings

But I will not fear
As the number of our leaves fall
I will look up to Heaven
And I will know that God has called

I will look toward the future
And see hope in new photos
New saplings will be planted
And new leaves will begin to grow

And if by chance Iím the last
Left blowing in the breeze
Iíll cherish each and every moment
Till again my family I see

Irv... this is stellar!! I have lost leaves off my tree. And presently I care
for my aged parents. My father is slowing down greatly. I know some day
soon he will be a falling leaf. Yet i know, our hope and glory is in Him who
does reward us... Thanks for posting this poignant poem! Blessings... Cinda
