Family Reunion - Poem by Jeredith Merrin

The divorced mother and her divorcing
daughter. The about-to-be ex-son-in-law
and the ex-husband's adopted son.
The divorcing daughter's child, who is

the step-nephew of the ex-husband's
adopted son. Everyone cordial:
the ex-husband's second wife
friendly to the first wife, warm

to the divorcing daughter's child's
great-grandmother, who was herself
long ago divorced. Everyone
grown used to the idea of divorce.

Almost everyone has separated
from the landscape of a childhood.
Collections of people in cities
are divorced from clean air and stars.

Toddlers in day care are parted
from working parents, schoolchildren
from the assumption of unbloodied
daylong safety. Old people die apart

from all they've gathered over time,
and in strange beds. Adults
grow estranged from a God
evidently divorced from History;

most are cut off from their own
histories, each of which waits
like a child left at day care.
What if you turned back for a moment

and put your arms around yours?
Yes, you might be late for work;
no, your history doesn't smell sweet
like a toddler's head. But look

at those small round wrists,
that short-legged, comical walk.
Caress your history--who else will?
Promise to come back later.

Pay attention when it asks you
simple questions: Where are we going?
Is it scary? What happened? Can
I have more now? Who is that?

Family Poems

  1. Family

    What then you ask, might be a family is it a bunch of people thrown together? Or is it God's own plan up in his gallery creating birds that share a common feather? A new arrival, Spring's delicious bud conceived through love as others have before is placed into your arms, it is your blood. a promise for your future, gypsy lore. The winds of change are whispering to me my sun remembers where to send those rays and when the darkness comes (when will it be?) there always is the moon, he has his ways.

  2. Family Of Friends

    How do you live, in a family, that never shows love, that only brings drama and chao, upon the table of life. ... How? because you surround yourself, with another kind of family. ... A family, that never judges you, won't pull you to the ground, but pick you up when your down in the dirt. ... People who, you can tell anything too, and won't think differently of you, after they know, your deepest, and darkest most kept secrets. ... This family, isn't blood related, but so much more, their a family of my friends. : : end: : written: 11/13/05

  3. Friends And Family

    Friends and family love you no matter what you do, Friends and family Always help each other though. Having wonderful people to help you along, They encourage and inspire you to stay strong. Friends and family are the trees of strength, When you need their help, they'll go to any length. They never judge you, just give you lots of love, What wonderful blessings they are from God above. Friends and family keep in touch, You can lean on them, they'll be your crutch. They email or call day by day And for each other they always pray. (James56/April 21 2007)

  4. The Importance Of Family

    Time passes so quickly there's no time to waste Spend time with your family, don't hesitate For you never know if tomorrow will come Show your love to all, and not just to some You never know the impact that you will make Make sure your actions are real and not fake If tomorrow comes and your loved ones are gone Your life is in despair and you're left all alone Yesterday is gone and you can't get it back Your heart is left cold, and your feelings now you lack It's regrets you'll feel with a broken heart You say 'God if I could have just one more start' But time that is lost can never again be found There's only quietness, no more laughter or sound So use wisely the time in which you've been given Don't be wasteful and make sure that you are living Your family is a precious gift from the Lord Always show them love and don't strike them with a sword No human is perfect for we all make mistakes We must learn forgiveness before it's to late If love we freely give then love we'll freely get And when it's heaven time, we'll be ready you can bet
