    Put far away
    From my family tree

    No lost and found
    To salvage me

    Drifter complete
    Losing me

    Hook
    Line ~
    Sinker
    Lost at sea

    Lately,
    Swam back...
    To self respect

    I've had enough
    Of that old regret

    Welcoming you
    Won't pity me

    A family reunion
    Is all WE need

    Notrhing better
    to
    find who's who
    with a love of
    family
    the tree is full
    i agree
    a reunion
    is where i wanna
    to be
    living and knowing
    all is well
    that family is bonded
    to teach it's
    history.

    Brother Poet 1poetsought,

    This piece brought back so many memories. I actually (as some would say) tried to flow to this piece but didn't like how it read. Will work on it and be back. (smile)

    to hold them all as they were then
    alive
