What My Family Means To Me


What does family mean to me?

To me family means people who let me be.

They support and care, 

And treat me fair, 

They love me dear,

Separation from them I fear.


I wonder what life would be without them,

Me being with them makes me feel like a gem.

Even though some died,

I still never cried.

Those still remain in my mind.

They were so very kind.


Even though my siblings are annoying, 

But being with them I am enjoying. 

I never want to lose their love,

They treat me like a mother does to her baby dove. 

I love them so,

I pray they never go...
