A Family Is Like a Circle


Published: February 2006

A family is like a circle
the connection never ends
and even if at times it breaks
in time it always mends
a family is like the stars
somehow they're always there
families are those who help
who support and always care
A family is like a book
the endings never clear
but through the pages of the book
their love is always near
A family is many things
with endless words that show
who they are and what they do
and how they teach you so you know
but don't be weary if it's broken
or if through time its been so worn
families are like that-
they're split up and always torn
but even if this happens
your family will always be
they help define just who you are
and will be apart of you eternally

My family is going through a tough time relationship problems. I want them to read this poem to get the real meaning of a family and their duties as a family. thank you for posting this poem. I love my sister and brother-in-law , but at this point I dislike both of them and what their doing to the children and themselves. God will make a miracle way for them.

I know what you are going through. My parents argue a lot, and I'm just in the middle of it. I don't like it and it just makes me sad. You are not alone. Right now my parents are in a argument about my dad going to Mexico, and my mom is mad at him because she thinks that he isn't supposed to. So you are not alone. There are other people that go through the same thing every day. No one is ever alone. :)

I have an example: The sun: mother. The moon: father. The stars: children
Family is what we need to keep us safe if someone gets hurt our family is always there no matter what it is. We should care and love our family. We should cooperate one another do household chores, make fun, and enjoy and relax. But remember sleep is the most priority thing we should do.

This poem has touched me because it makes me think about my sister and how she loves and cares about me so much...it's like if I didn't have her in my life I think I would have gone crazy by now...I love my sister to death and no matter what happens I will always be there for her and she will always be there for me. I love you sister <3

This poem touches my heart, in April 2008 our brother passed away from pancreatic cancer at the age of 51. Through out his illness my 6 brothers and sisters were with George, I never left his side. He lived 27 months with disease and passed away at home. I could never had done this without my family and we all go the garden to place flowers and small tokens on his grave. We love you little brother but we'll see you soon

I am the secretary for our church and was searching a poem to put in our bulletin as we celebrate "Family Month" in October. We celebrate our church anniversary in October as well and this year we celebrate our 120th Anniversary. We know that it is power of families that has kept our church continuing to grow...a church of many generations.
