What Is Family? - Poem by Edwina Reizer

A family is love
That puts itself above
Everything else in this world.

A family is trust
That's fair and just
In its treatment of each other.

A family is pride
And will never hide
Its feelings for one another.

A family is dear
And won't disappear
When things are getting tough.

A family is hope
That learns to cope
With all that comes their way.

A family is sound
With their feet on the ground
On every brand new day.

A family is kind
And will always find
The time to be together.

A family is wise
And treasures its ties
For always and forever.

    A family is heaven for beginners. A lovely poem well articulated and nicely penned to capture the essence of a family. It's a beautiful poem with good rhyme scheme. Thanks for sharing and do keep it up. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    I cant help but say thank you for writing this treasure, my family has always been an important foundation for me, and my mother has been an anchor when I needed gravity

    A family is hope
    That learns to cope
    With all that comes their way.

    That summarizes my definition of that great institution. (Report) Reply
