The Power Of Family

© Antony Smith
Family is,
heaven sent from our father above,
bonded by the power of love.
No matter what family has each others back,
when push comes to shove.

Family is,
understanding, never demanding,
all for one and one for all,
I will never leave you alone standing.

Family is,
one in itself, my love is your love,
your pain is my pain, my wealth is your wealth,
I promise to never leave you by yourself.

Family is,
the strongest team, the strongest unit;
if love could be visualized,
family would be the blue print.

Family is,
forgiveness and patience,
it's sweeter than the sweetest fragrance,
the power of family is a reflection of God's compassion and magnificence.

Family is,
never turning our back, and never shames,
lend my helping hand and not a finger pointing the blame.

No matter what, a family bond can never be broken,
even through a nuclear explosion,
if one of us lives we all live.
Forever to eternity, we are family,
my father, my mother, my sisters and me.

  • Since my Dad's funeral over 2 years ago our family splintered - my twin sister and I have not spoken since then because of unforgiveness on her part and my younger sister and my mum are estranged. Only God can mend all the broken pieces to become whole again.
    "Family is, forgiveness and patience, it's sweeter than the sweetest fragrance, the power of family is a reflection of Gods compassion and magnificence"
    I continue to pray for restoration and renewal by God's grace.

  • I have to do a project for my English class and I was looking for a poem when I stumbled across this one. I used it and got a good grade on the project. I thought I'd share that with you.

  • My mother in law passed in May 2010. My husband is the executor of the estate, the eldest of 5. He can do no right, everything wrong. The family has lost sight of human values and feelings. Patience being the biggest. Our family is totally torn apart all for the love of greed, being selfish, and lack of Gods love, forgiveness, and compassion. It really hurts me because it not only affects us, but especially the little children who are forming life skills and see their parents at war. I am sending this in our Christmas cards and hope it will create a miracle. Thank You for the wisdom of words.
