    for this one night
    it didnt matter who did what
    whose daddy was which;
    nothing mattered so much.
    for these seven hours
    i stood next to my family
    we shared drinks; we shared laughs
    they seemed happy to have me
    five generations
    packed in one room
    all on the dance floor
    even those too old to move
    and the dj played
    while the ebony embers swayed
    it was peace; it was life;
    it was a family unbroken;
    i wish it was always that way.
    but at least i can look back next time and say
    we all loved each other-
    even if just that one day.
    peace--Ms.Dy
